Anything before the air filter can be removed without confusing the electronics, but bear in mind that a lot of thought went into this design. It's only a question of priorities. Noise, emissions, low rev torque and all the rest of it are balanced well in a stock system.
Most intake systems aren't very restrictive, and are often rooted to the high air pressure region in front of the radiator, where cool air is available. Rerouting the intake and sucking hot air from within the engine bay will not improve things.

their is a three piece set of plastic intake stuff that is mounted to the outside of the framereail area under the plastic fender skirt, this probably is what your refering too, right?
I cut the snout off of this intake "Silencer" as its called in the FSM and owners manual. And then stuck this piece i cut (about 3 inches long) backinto the metal intake box thru the frmae and that way the cooler air comes in thru the from underbumpber hole and the plastic fender skirt keeps tire stuff from getting into the intake.
I still like the idea of a alum, pvc, ect. intake tube that comes out thru that hole and down to the frnt and has the filter down there. My single concern is the easy access to getting water flooding into it from such a low level with how i drive sometimes in the rain ect.
