The engine bay gets pretty hot, if you dont have an avenue for cool air to get top the intake it will sucking up the hot ambient air in the engine bay, even when moving.

If you have an Accessport you can read your intake air temps. I know in comparison with a local friends car my Cold air intake runs at least a few degrees cooler than his short ram.

That is absolutely true if u just have a short ram. I should have been more specific since I was thinking of Cobb SF air box. At that point I am not sure if there would be much difference if any. I would love to see a comparison test between the two.

Pretty much Any intake inside the engine bay is considered a "short ram", whether it uses a box or not.

The box really needs to be sealed in order to not get any hot air sucked in from the engine bay. Most airboxes will shield the short ram from the direct heat of the engine/up-pipe/turbo, etc., but it's not sealing it against the ambient air/heat in the engine bay.
