Superheated air for the factory set-up?

We use high density foam to seal this gap , Also behind the engine the rubber seal is usually destroyed by heat, replace with high temp silicone material,

Intercooler mist systems can be used to restore some efficiency , There are some very good kits out there, As you continue your search for better Intercooling consider a temp. instrument (in/out),

Good luck with your project, Lou / AERO DYNAMICS
While I do agree that as much air is to be forced through the intercooler, but when the system is completely sealed, isn't what's going into the engine's intake superheated air from the engine AND intercooler?
