That is going to vary largely depending on the surface area of your intake, and the angle of the intake surface. More important IMO in the case of a functional SAC is getting cool dense air to the intake instead of the hot air trapped under the tank.
I agree.

Again... let me preface this with saying I know next to nothing about engines....

If the custom intake is located right next to the side of the engine... is the air coming off the side of the engine going to really be that much cooler than the air under the tank?
unless well insulated, air within an airbox that's trapped between the the bottom of a gas tank and the top of a running engine is  going to be hotter than the ambient air tempurature.

I'm curious if this will effect the fuel management system (PCV or Power Pro).  Not sure.
I highly doubt that it would.

Wow, there really was a Raider under all the dirt...  ;)  Looks great and good to hear that it worked OK.  Are you gonna have it dyno'd?  Would love to see the numbers.
