What you could try if you have the standard airbox is modifying the intake snorkel.
At the front of the airbox you have the snorkel right, it goes to the kidney grille area, well if you have a look at it again you'll see that the other end is a cylender type shape and goes to the brake duct but is blanked off (on the 3.0L it actually sits int he brake duct and direct ari up into the aribox). Cut a bit off the end of the snorkel so it is open, make a hole in your brake duct (the outline is moulded into the brake duct from factory), get a flexible hose about 3-3.5" diameter and poke it through th ebrake duct with the other end fixed onto the snorkel, this will direct even more cold air into the airbox and definately keep temps down on long runs so the power delivery will always be consistent no matter how hot the temperatures outside or inside the engine bay.
I did this with a ITG panel filter before i had my induction kit and it made a difference to the pick up, it felt more perkier and revved better. Oh and put wire mesh on the hose in the brake duct side otherwise you'll end up with leaves and sht in your airbox!
