How hot is the "boosted air"?

On my 01 the prior owner put the boost gauge input just after the turbo pipe before the intercooler. I am in the process of ordering the IPT boost gauge install kit with their map mod. I was debating on putting a intake temp gauge in its old spot. just wondering how hot does the air get after the turbo before the cooler. thanks

Personally I would put the boost gauge and MAP line at the turbo output. I like to see what boost the turbo is making as thats what keeps thrust bearings alive. Also on my OBS truck after the IC install I reduced the lag alot by moving the MAP line. It may not be much of a gain on the SD but the smaller exhuast housing but I bet it would make some difference.
