Question Post-intercooler temps?

Those of you who have intercooler temp gauges, what kind of pre & post-IC temps are you track guys seeing in your cars under extended heavy loads?

At what temps should one begin to worry and back off?

The other day I was fooling around down in the back-streets and I was driving it like I stole it. Boost was ~1.2bar. I noticed my post-intercooler temps were hitting around 40-50DegC whilst the inlet was in the high 90's

Just wondering what's considered to be a safe inlet air temp in these forced induction motors?
