Thread drift.... sorry.
On my Rocket, the side NACA fuselage air was consistently 11F hotter than the air coming from under the wing to the back seat. My RV-4 was similarly hotter. I don't recommend the side NACA scoops.
However, getting the air from under the wing to the front is a challenge due to the spar being in the way.
