Can't the deck plate mod let in warm air into the intake and actually cause a loss of H.P.? If this is all about a better sound, then IMPO that is not a wise modification

On the older trucks, the deck plate faces the front, and is inches from the grill. When In motion, it pulls in ambient temp. air. Every Dyno run I have seen with the deck plate has shown consistant 5 h.p. gains.
