Are you curious because of the heat or you just want to add the meth system to the supercharger?
Not just heat, but octane as well.

I understand both the VF620 and ESS VT2 kits come with air/water intercooling. And no matter how good the air/water systems are, the addition of meth/water with both reduce IATs and provide a much higher effective octane rating. As an example, I have an intercooler on my N54 335. Without meth/water it is tuned to 14.5 psi making ~ 350 RWHP. But with the meth/water, IAT's are significantly reduced (I have plenty of logs of this) and the meth increases the effective octane on pump 91 gas to something near 100 and so ignition can be advanced and boost can be increased. In this map, it yields ~ 410 RWHP.

I am not advocating meth as an alternative to an intercooler. I want to add meth to an already intercooled application and tune for it.
