i canít remember where I read/heard it, but the 2019 GT3RS makes in excess of 550hp at ~150mph because of the side inlets.

Ok. Here's an interesting question: what wheels will it have? Style and size.

The wing on the GT3 would make it even worse cause of the low pressure area under the wing which should suck air away from the intakes.
Disclaimer - I got my aero degree from youtube, so caveat lector.
Since we’re already geeking out over turbulent flow and cooling inlets, I’d like to introduce the ultimate air inlet - The P-51 Mustang oil cooler was so efficient that it actually increased the speed of the aircraft. It essentially produced thrust. Absolute genius. The Meredith effect.

Thanks, love geeking on aerodynamics, cause it is all so black magic to me.
