Temperature and pressure both change air density and that is what affects power. You have to state pressure gains and temperature reductions to be able to determine which one dominates. I posted a link once to some tests that were done with ram tubes on a Kawasaki motorcycle. There are gains to be made if it is done right and the air speeds are high.
