If you can get away with same massflow on inlet-outlet-combination and same massflow average Temperature and/or concentrations, then it is possible to do this in CFX using expressions. E.g., if the fluid entering through inlet 1 equals the conditions from Outlet1, then you can write:

TempIn1 = massFlowAve(Temperature)@Outlet1

Remember, this ignores any profile information, which is probably not so important if the inlet and outlet are far away anyway.
