I'd say figure out a way to keep air directed to the stack even if you place the innercooler there. 150* air is probably better than none at all considering the ECT and EOT is ~200*

An intercooler needs LOTS of cross-sectional airflow, and the nostrils don't qualify. The idea is to transfer heat OUT of the compressed air before it goes into the engine to increase the density (& therefore mass) of the air charge. Heat transfer is driven by temperature difference, and there isn't much between ambient & 15psi compressed air (or even 80psi). So that's why it takes extra-high flow of outside air to have enough effect to counteract the cost, weight, & complexity of an intercooler.

If you're not gonna have a LOT of air moving through it, you might as well skip it.
