Yes, it will, but only because you're driving it harder.

Wait until your PCM learns the new air supply. It'll get even better.

No, the pCM won't affect the heat. You're running hotter because you're probably 'performance testing' the intake. AND you're pulling hot engine bay heat in through your cone because you don't have a heat shield or CAI (and you were pulling cold air through the fender with your stock airbox).

The PCM needs time to learn the 'new' amount of air being delivered. Your performance will increase slightly over the next 100 miles or so.
