Water to air intercooler

Has anyone tried it? I mean cheaper, easy install, same results? I know the fear of a leak and coolant dumping in your motor but if u keep a good eye on your cooling system there shouldn't be to many problems. All the new trucks are coming with them. Any thoughts? And has anyone done it?

Water to air intercooler

IMO it's a lot of extra weight with the extra coolant and circulation pump for no reason when it's a lot simpler to use an air to air intercooler.

Most of the aftermarket A/W systems use a dedicated water supply. They are great setups and are SUPER effective if you have the correct specs I/C size, water pump sixe, correct water flow through the I/C. But unless I was building some crazy all out monster, I will be more than happy with an air to air cooler.
