A better mod would be altering resistance of the coolant temp sensor. That only effects ignition timing AFIK. Air intake temp alters ignition timing and injector duty cycle.

As usual, this mod is a trade off. It will likely increase fuel economy, but result in worse emissions. Then again, who is using WOT all the time? Not many, and especially not us.
