I think it would be a huge waste of money.

IMO that $270. is crazy, if that housing and filter were price at a reasonable I would go for it. But at that $$$ no way.

Mike - you can get just the filter housing for a reasonable $90. http://www.uspmotorsports.com/DSG-Co...r-Housing.html
As far as S/S filters go, they're hard to clean thoroughly. With pleated paper filters you can simply throw away the dirt. I picked up a filter housing last month in anticipation of doing the 40K, even though I'm at 26K+ now. It's a quality CNC piece.

If you had a race car or something that might be helpful, but in a stock car I'd think airflow over that area of the trans is mostly blocked.

Totally unnecessary, with only speculative benefits.

You asked.
