The outside air temperatures will never be as hot as the fluid running through an engine, and that's the reason why the ProCharger works so well to push cooler air into the intake, and why the roots blowers don't thus the need for ice, and chillers.

As for increse in HP using meth.; My understanding is can use meth to cool the cylinder temp (which will maintain what ever power you already have vs a reduction in power due to hotter IAT's) OR use it as a fuel additive to provide power above and beyond what you have already. One method does nothing to increase power, the other does nothing to cool temps.
