Default Normal AWIC Temps

Ive got a 04 forester 2.5xt engine in a VW vanagon (rear mounted engine)
I used a Frozenboost AWIC intercooler, bosch cobra pump, and then a heat exchanger mounted in a vent. Getting good airflow in the back of a van is hard. Ive also got a 7" fan on the heat exchanger that kicks on when air temps "after" the IC hit 110F.

Long story short, I am seeing air temps after the AWIC about 30 above ambient and even higher when pulling a mountain pass or something. (Van weighs almost 6,000lbs)

The highest temps Ive seen are like 145F.
At what temps should I be concerned?

Note I'm running stock boost, stock turbo, so the AWIC should be kinda overkill.
