As far a warm air intakes, thermal dynamically as in the Bratton cycle, recouperated engines heat the air after the compression stage or turbo compressor. Wherby any heat added is fuel burn need a reduced for the best BSFC. However the intake temperature of the compressor stage or turbo is best ambient to cooled.

Thinking of a design to heat the air after the turbo would take some creative plumbing, but would yeild the best savings instead BSFC.

Fogg cooling the intake of the compressor can further reduce BSFC.
