Question condensation freezing IAC on TB?

I was wondering if anyone else has encoutered this problem? I have the airraid CAI and have been getting condensation inside the tube and freezing the IAC during the winter. This in turn causes the engine not to start at idle, but will run when the i have the pedel pressed down and the rpm's at about 1K, whenever I let off the throttle the engine dies. What i did for a quick fix is to disconnect the vacuum tube that runs into the side of the modular tube right before the TB and haven't had a problem with it since. Is there any drawbacks to doing this. I know that there has been a TSB that was put out on this, called local dealership and they want $220 to fix it according to the TSB was wondering anyone has this problem and fixed it themselves? According to the TSB you have to get a new oil fill reservoir and relocate the PCV vavle to the back drivers side of the engine. Any advice would help! Thanks
