Then I guess Corky Bell who wrote "Maximum Boost" apparently doesn't know a whit about this.

He states:
IN CAP DESIGN. It is fundamantal that thermal efficiency will improve if we
can get equal distribution of airflow through the core tubes. A serious attempt
at accomplishing this can be made by suitable baffles built into the end cap.
The position of the inlet to the in-cap should receive attention in several areas.
Keep uppermost in mind the requirements of air distribution and ease of flow.

He proceeds with an illustration very similar to the intercooler above, showing a baffle to divide the incoming air.
He also shows an illustration of end cap designs, specifically listing the above style design under, and I quote, "Bad".

Ref pages 60-61, Corky Bell - Maximum Boost
