Not at all, this could add leverage to the WAI if you don't ping. We already knew that the warmer the air, the more retarded the timing is. It all depended if the advantages from the air temps were enough to offset the retarded timing losses. For some it was, for others it wasn't. With an IAT mod, you can get a little bit of that timing back, thus making the WAI even more effective.
