Weber air cleaner adapter

Just installed a new Weber over the weekend and bought the optional adapter that allows you to use the stock air cleaner assembly for cold air intake (bought it all from Carbs Have any of you guys used this setup? I tried it both ways today at speeds up to 80 mph and I really didn't see a difference--I think the added flow of the square weber air filter balances out the cold air of the stock setup. Anyway, I think I'm going to send the adapter back, but I was just wondering if anybody saw a real difference/advantage that might entice me to keep it (I don't think it's worth the extra $30).

Currently an '86 CJ-7 and a '77 CJ-7 Golden Eagle---#4 and 5 following a '01 Sahara, '90 Sahara, and '85 CJ-7....

I found it is good for cold weather. Helps with the warm-up process. However, living in Florida I would think it is not needed. I would just stay with the small base and K&N filter.

One advantage that comes to mind is that the stock assembly may help keep mud and water out of the carb a little better. I know that the square filter is oil coated and can be cleaned, but it's a little harder for mudd to travel up the inlet on the stock assembly.

Just a thought
