From this I can get the increased density before the intercooler, the intercooler further increases the density of the air (a good thing for sure) with relatively small losses. We should now have inlet P, T, and rho (density) for the cylinder We know our compression ratio E (as defined (Vc + Vh)/Vc where Vh is cylinder displacement and Vc is cylinder compression space) so we use the equation Pc =PL * (E** n) where n = 1.35 (polytropic exp of real gases) to determine final compression pressure where PL is charging pressure and Pc is compression pressure so for a charge pressure of 2 bar and a compression ratio of 9.3 you get a final compression pressure of 41 bar or for the formula 1 with E=6.5 and Pc ~4 bar you get a final compression pressure of 50 bar I pulled most of this stuff from the Bosch Automotive Handbook (mostly p339, 2nd ed) so maybe this sheds a little light (and maybe not).
