A cold air intake will not make any difference in your timing. It is a minor change at best.

No, you do not. If you changed the manifold and throttle body it would be a little different because the volume of air allowed into the engine will be greater and to optimize the air fuel ratio you would need to tune it a bit richer. CAI will help air flow better, however the difference in CFM is so negligible it wouldn't matter in your cord.
