So as I'm learning from this thread myself, it sounds like as straight a path as possible from air intake to manifold with the intercooler in line, then a separate intake that keeps cooler outside air coming across the intercooler to cool it so that the air destined for the fuel/air mixture is as cool as possible when it reaches the cylinder, OR some sort of water-cooling system with a radiator that can continuously cool the intercooler? I'm starting to get ideas and that's never good for the wallet.

Are you sure that your Cummins does not have a water to air after cooler on the side of the engine?

Yes I'm certain.

The purpose of the snorkel/scoop is to grab the air flowing over the top of the bus which should also be the coolest & route it down & forcing more cooling air thru the Intercooler saving routing piping up to the roof

The old Flxible Clippers all had a bigass scoop on the roof to feed lots of air down into the engine compartment. Seemed to work great for about forty years and many of them are still running strong.

That's what I like about my Amtran. Two huge scoops on either side, channeling cooler air into the engine bay
