I think that with the larger tapered filter, plus if the driver' side engine splash pan is still in place, he'll be fine. That engine pan does a lot to keep the dust from the left front tire from getting up into that side of the engine thanks to so much air flow coming through the large opening of the hood front and creating a slightly higher air pressure zone above the splash pan. 

 

Unlike the downdraft engines, that pan doesn't contribute to that side of the engine running hot, which can cause vapor lock, like downdraft engines.... unless it's a poorly adjusted engine making the fuel system more prone than most. Usually, sidedraft engine cars are more likely to have "turnpike icing" of the carburetor - and not suffer from over heating of the fuel system if kept  moving. But, being stuck in traffic on a very hot day and all bets are off !
