Well, sort of. Compressing the air to a higher PSI is what really heats up the air - the heat from the exhaust side of the turbo minimally so in comparison.

The annoying thing about these intercoolers, and most "non-sport" turbo cars, is that the intercooler is sandwiched between the AC condensor (HOT in the summer) and radiator (also hot in the summer). Without air flow over the sammich, your intake air temps can be quite hot until you get rolling again, and the Cruze will fall on its face at times trying to keep knock from damaging the engine.
