The air intake has nothing to do with engine operating temperature. If your car is truly "running hot" in traffic (what does the gauge say in traffic?), make sure your condenser and radiator are clean and clear of debris, leaves, etc., your shroud is intact, the fan is working properly, all the rubber seals are in place, and your coolant is at the proper level. Does it run at normal temperature on the highway?
