It also seems in the case of a 930, that the most direct air flow is from the rear area of the grille in the engine cover to the engine fan. If that's really the case, then the intercooler core should be in the that area to optimize cooling. That would favor a side-to-side IC where you could place the core as tight as possible to the rear of the engine cover grille, rather than having the tank in that area.

One thing I found interesting, in one of Juan's pics of Bello's car, he actually built a large duct sealed to the bottom of the IC and the engine cooling fan, for better flow.
