ICE has many efficencies
1) Indicated thermal effeciency
2) Break thermal Effeciency
3) Volumertic Effciency
4) Relative efficency

With Increasing the Inlet temperature the density of air decrease, so volumetric effeciency, one of the most important parameters in ICE will be affected by the inlet gas temperature.
It will increase to some value then decrease if the inlet air temp. increase to high values as the density of the air decrease.
The modern designs make the Exhaust manifold close to the intake manifold to increase the inlet gas temp., that leads to make the combustion easier only at some designed values . Specially in the SIE the evaporation will faster and more efficient.

With the increase in temperature of intake air specific heat cp and cv increase by equal amount and it will decrease the ratio cp/cv which increase the efficiency...

As the pressure increases inside the combustion chamber while the fuel enter to the chamber the temperature also increases when the piston moves from bottom dead centre to top dead centre.

Higher intake temperature of inlet gasses (without effective compression through a turbo charger or supercharger ) will result in decrease in volumetric efficiency of the engine as less air will enter inside the cylinder due to lower density of air fuel mixture.

The unwanted sound coming from the engine due to the rapid pressure rise is called Knocking

If intake air temp increases automatically efficiency increase because due more temp air fuel mixture easily ignited.

As the temp. of intake air increase the value of CP and CV increases but the value of CP/CV decreases so that the efficiency decrease.

According to Carnot efficiency of a process increases when the temperature difference at the start and the end of the process increases. So it will decrease. Rudolf Diesel understood this and based the design of his Diesel engine on this principle. Also intercoolers on cars inlet systems are developed for this reason.

Efficiency will be decrease because area of Otto cycle decreases with increase in intake temperature.

Yeah, increasing the temperature at inlet is the principle of the turbo charging, which we get the hot gases readily and there will be increase of efficiency
