The second argument for the 396 TE:

How a Change of Air does the Engine a World of Good

High-power engine operation requires that combustion air to the cylinders be as cool as possible, while an elevated temperature level is beneficial at idle or low loads. On the 396 TE this problem is solved by thermostatic control of the charge-air coolant stream across the cooler to match current load conditions. Under low-load operation, for example, the cooler is bypassed completely. Thus, directional coolant flow control provides for air tempera- tures consistent with operational demands - yet another proof that our innovative engineering developments trans- late into high technological standards.
