Default Preventing heat soak for IAT sensor

In the pic below you can see my IAT sensor is on the left IC pipe (on the right hand side of the bling pipe). Would you think it is getting heat soaked being there and if so do you think it would be wise to run a duct to get some external air to it? I was thinking of running a duct to it but am hesitant because if my iat's are getting hot the cooler air onto that pipe may influence what ms sees. Also rite now on the street my iat's are about the same as the outdoor temps.

The more I think about it the more I think I don't need to do this seeing how it is cool enough back there for the ic to get my temps to ambient and my filter is pulling air from essentially the same spot...

I ment to mess with your IAT related density crap on your MS when we were tuning today... It might help out your idle. Maybe tomorrow. . . I will have my laptop at autox.

I may be distracted tho. It will be my gfs first ever Autox in her WRX (and more or less my first boosted event)

If I'm not running the same time as you guys I'll get some good shots...don't know about video unless you have a good video shooting camera (d5000's don't auto focus when recording video).
