Other than driving around with bags of ice inside my CAI, I don't know how else to lower that incoming temp.

FWIW, I have the Airaid RACE CAI for my 5.0
You can't. All you can do is push more air through. aftermarket CAI? Nah. Supercharger when the warranty is up?

The biggest problem with the aftermarket CAI is that a lot of them are metal. then it doesn't matter where the air is coming from as its flowing thru this convection oven into the engine.

Very few CAI are composite.
