I don't understand the logic that the engine fan draws air through the intercooler, i'm not saying is is wrong but it doesn't make sense to me.
Surely air will find the easiest route, it would therefore draw it's air from below? I would have thought that the intercooler shrouding to the tail is to force the air being pushed into it by the forward motion of the car, no shrouding and the air would blow all around the intercooler.
Somebody educate me to why i'm wrong (i will not be shocked to find that i am)

Edit: Wouldn't it be a good idea to have a moulded shroud under the intercooler to the fan on the engine, so that the fan REALLY draws air through the intercooler?
