Lightbulb Random question

so if you add a cold air intake to a car it does it bring down the operating temperature at all? and if it does wouldn't that be bad since your car would be operating at less than its optimal temperature and therefore sort of cancel out any potential benefits?? this is prob. a dumb question but i was wondering.

No, it's not going to noticeably lower operating temps.
What it would do is lower the temp of the air entering the intake, this is good because cooler air is denser therefore it holds more oxygen.
