I would think that it would be pullin' hotter air into the system makin' the turbo hotter and causing less dense air to be pushed thru. I wouldn't think it would hurt anything, but I don't know for sure.

It only adds MAYBE 2-3*F to OAT when not moving. When you are driving the temps are the same as OAT. I have been running a modded snorkel for years now. Best part is it makes OEM filter swaps a 5 min job.

Yep, I've done the same. It's so easy that I swapped from an AFE Stage 2 to an AFE Stage One to use the stock intake setup. it requires no tools to change, and it all can be pulled out easily on the side of the road in case I pop that lower intercooler boot.
