Temperature - with top open

I understand controlling the temperatures when cooking on the Egg now.

250 - 1/8 inch on the lower vent and 1/4 on the petals of the DW.
350 - 1 inch on the lower vent and petals wide open and slid over 1/4 the way

Now my question is about WOK cooking or whatever cooking with the top open.  I know if I am cooking at 350 and I leave the top open for over a minute I will have a raging hot fire (Fire coming up the sides of the Egg).  If I am cooking on a WOK I believe I should close the bottom vent.  Will this keep the fire at a reasonable hot temperature or will it be a blazing fire?
