Random thoughts in intercooling:
I've seen NOS sprayed directly onto intercooler fins, mostly on smaller cars where you cant get big intercoolers bolted up. It's gotta help - freezes 'em right up. I 'cold-burned' myself multiple times on my NOS tank fittings (when I used the stuff on my Mustang).
An efficient intercooler makes a huge difference - the more square inches of fins the better, obviously. I picked up a couple of tenths moving from stock to a much larger stock-location intercooler on the GN. One of these days I'm going get the IC out from under the hood and up in front, but the front-mount intercoolers are pricey.
The Typhoon had a liquid-to-air intercooler but I doubt it really helped as much as a decent front-mounted air-to-air would have. They put the coolant resevoir for the IC on top of the hot exhaust manifold, and the IC itself was puny.
