    them boys got that good shit and you won't be disappointed...however u best make u a nice, big, insulated ice and water reservoir for max benefit (as big as practical if u planning to street the setup and if u do that's some real gang shit)...no need for such a large and insulated res. if only dragging for obvious reasons (small, uninsulated res = less weight, ability to replace ice/water each run, etc.)...epic fail if u don't keep the water colder than ambient, then ur obvioulsy less efficient than a good ol' air/air core. The need for a reservior keeps these off the streets for the most part. Hard to find reviews since most use these on the track only and properly implemented air/water setups are known superior to air/air setups (unless you race in the deep arctic somewhere). The cooling effect is impressive and if you tune properly you will make more power than an air/air setup any day.

    ya, liquid to air is better for packaging and less boost lines (cooler mounted with the intake) but air to air is more efficient when you use correct size coolers obviously.

    Yea ive heard their w2a setups are pretty good. I considered purchasing a kit from them a few months back. Their log setup was ideal. I think thats 1 of theirs on the rb below.

    every reply in this thread...

    the OP was asking about them so he has an excuse.

    efficiency is about the coolers ability to cool.

    if you really want to go into it, water trasnfers heat more efficiently so a smaller air to water core is required to cool the charged air. however, air to air is going to be more "efficient" refering to the fact that you have to cool the air with water. so heat is transfered into the water, then back into the air through a separate radiator.

    its less common because its more complicated.

    whats good: less charged air, less psi drop from core, more flexible mounting location, flexible fluid choices (coolant, ice, Co2 injection)

    whats bad: more complicated. more weight.

    in all reality you should piece together a setup
