Has anyone added a fan to the back side (engine bay) of the intercooler to draw air thru on those 'hot' days? Just curious if you added a separate thermostat to control the fan dependent on ambient air, or coolant temp... or if you just went with a manual switch.

Considering the intake Air Temperature (IAT) readings I got when adding a K&N intake I don't think it's necessary to add a fan UNLESS you do A LOT of stop and go driving where you literally continuously stay in one place for 5 minutes or more.
The K5 intercooler does a really good job of cooling the intake air - the IAT stays within 20 degrees of ambient air temperature.
