who told you air to water is more efficient?Air to air is more efficient, but air to water is more compact!

Whenever you can have a large front mount air to air it will cool the charge a heck of a lot faster than water that is packed in somewhere...
ambient temp will aways be lower than the water due to the water heat soaking and such, why do most if not all HP turbo cars use air to air if water is more efficient?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
