So I was lookin' at the motor the other day and I'll be damned if this thing doesn't have a water cooled intercooler on it, can anyone confirm that or am I goin' crazy? Also what's that gizmo sticking out of the rear left of the cylinder head?

not sure but maybe this will help even though there are points in the article that are incorrect. The article says it has a water cooled intercooler on the input of the turbo. The turbo should also have an oil line going to it from the engine. Usually turbos are oil cooled and water can be added to it for further cooling but oil cooling is still present in those.

All in all, it is a cool engine series that is not new with the Taos. Its been on other cars for a few years. I found the new VW engine cycle interesting with the VVT. this is the error I noticed in the article, it says Miller Cycle but it is actually the Budack Cycle. It seems like a good advancement on the Miller Cycle and solves the issues with turbo engines that cause damage during normal operation.

I also found this from another site (the block has a high and low temp cooling loop)
There is also a low-temperature cooling circuit for indirect charge air cooling. The cooling of the exhaust manifold and the turbocharger is also integrated into this circuit. The low-temperature circuit has an electrically driven coolant pump, which means, for example, that the turbocharger can be cooled even after the vehicle has been switched off.

I grabbed the part number off the gizmo and it's a "Valve".
A little more research though shows it is a Kombi (Combination) valve. It's purpose is supposedly to allow air from the secondary air pump to enter the exhaust when the engine is cold (or sometimes at idle) to heat up the cat quicker.
I had wondered what it was as well but I must have been feeling lazy that day.
