Default Engine Cover Question

So just out of curiousity....

I took my engine cover off per the advice I found here, and the fact that I like to see the SC.

But, living in the tundra, when winter temperatures can get below 0 regularly, would it be a good idea to put it back on for the colest part of winter? Just to keep those SC temps up a little more on those really cold days?

What do our canuck members do?

TIA

Cooler temps will only help your supercharger. The cover may help the engine heat up faster though if your worried about getting heat quicker.
