wouldn't this only result in false readings. the IAT should be in the same location as the stock tubing, it is meant to measure air going into the engine, not into the airbox. All you are doing by moving it to the filter is forcing a slightly richer mixture. you might as well toss a resistor in parallel or series (whichever would be appropriate in this situation) to slightly lower the temp readings.
and yes, the t-bolt clamps and that coupler are not cheap parts
