Default Temp Readings

I thought of this the other day...
If you wanted to know what the temp of the air going into your intake (for a comparison between stock airbox/open cone/cai), why not mount the external temp sensor from the climate control by the filter? Or, you could go even farther by drilling a hole in the tube and mounting it in there (just make sure you fill the hole when you are done).
This way, you could get temp readings while you are driving, and i think the digital climate control display goes up to 199 deg. C or F.

Why not just buy a digital thermometer from Radio Shaq?

If you use that sensor, your climate control will think it'* too hot outside. Then you will get more A/C than you bargained for.

i was thinkin this would be for a short period of time, just to test what the temp is, you can always turn off the A/C.
