Air filter versus cold air intake

My engine runs a little bit warm. I do live in Arizona and the 100 plus degree temperatures do not help. I am running a 383 and I am trying to cool the engine down a little. I am installing a cowl hood, not for performance but for looks. I was wondering if a larger/taller air filter would help with temperature/performance or if a cold air intake system would help more.

cold air packages usually flow well.

If you were to open up that cowl hood to allow for the escapement of hot air from the engine compartment that will help as well..Hot air in the engine compartment just bakes everything and shows up on the temp gauge...

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
