I said heat and entropy are related, but absolutely not the same thing. I never once said entropy = heat / temperature. Also, in this case, hotter is faster flow. Not because that's a physics formula but because of how you are cooling the charge. The air is fastest after the turbo, and unless you let the heat bleed off naturally or inject chemicals like meth to cool it, you are absolutely slowing it down by making it cooler, because you're using a restrictive device to cool it. Gotta go study, thanks for the discussion though guys. I enjoy this stuff. "
