davidm_sh has one of these, and I think he has been quite satisfied with its performance.

David, care to comment in detail?

As the density of water is much higher than the density of air, I'd expect a well engineered water to air intercooler to be very efficient.

Might be great for drag racing where you can chill the water with ice before the run. However, once the water warms up to the same temp as the intake charge, then efficiency drops compared to an air to air intercooler. Water tends to strongly resist any temp changes better than most liquids. And that's a good thing when the water temp in the IC is cooler than the intake air because that means the water will absorb a lot of heat. But after a few minutes once the the water temp reaches the same temp of the intake air and higher, then it's a battle to remove that heat from the water. So unless your drag racing, I would stick with an air to air since it is the most efficient IC. If you need more cooling, consider a water spray onto the IC or get a larger IC.
