"My reasoning behind a WAI is that warm air would help the engine warm up faster and stay above 195 degrees Fahrenheit"

Every car's cooling system makes sure that the car stays at operating temp after it's warmed up by using a thermostat. If you're dropping below what your t stat is rated at, then you have a bad t stat or you've been coasting down a hill too long.
