Obviously the colder the air the better. Is your filter hose bolted/secured somewhere? I haven't figured out how to lock mine in without building the custom 'house' for it (which i'll probably end up doing).
Yes, without the shield, specially for your style of intake, all you'r doing is getting hot air since humm... the engine is right next to your intake....
So unless if you slap a heat shield.... you might as well not use yours because besides an increase in sound, you'r prob losing "some" power
