Default Fan for cold air intake

Alright guys I know that this may be a silly idea and I may get toasted for it, but here goes.

Like everyone else, I have run out of room under my hood and can't seem to get my air filter as far away from my turbo as I would like.

I have it mounted up high and tight against the radiator core support and the passenger's side fender. I am going to build a heat shield to put around it, but there is still no good way for me to get fresh air to it.

My idea is this, cut a 5" hole in my radiator core support and mount a small fan like this 5", 200cfm in that hole blowing straight at the air filter in hopes of getting some of the heat away from the intake.
Amazon Amazon

Would there be a benefit to this or would I do just as well just to cut the hole in the support and forget the fan.

Thanks for the help

That fan will do little to nothing. You'd be better off just making some nice ducting to get air in.
