But its an intercooler. It will cool the air no matter what, right? Right guiz?

No. If the ambient air is hotter than the air in it, it will not cool.
I think their point is, front mount is a much better.
Even the subie boys put them out front when they want more.

Coolest air through intercooler = win

I prefer to front mount whenever possible.
