Raised intake temperatures are a consequence of forced induction. To deal with this problem, engineers use intercooling to lower air intake temperatures back to normal. One is Air-to-Air, the other is Air-to-Water. Which one is best?

It appears the F80 is going with Air-to-water this time. I wonder if that was due to reducing underhood intake plumbing (which as you can see here is already considerable) or for some other reason. I now have a flimsy excuse to post the Veyron's Air-to-water engine porn.

Think we'll see more of this in the future? What do you think the best IC system is? If you were doing a turbo build, which would you pick?
