My experience with air to water intercoolers is that they are only better if you can run ice in them. On a track car that will be running more than a few minutes the ice will melt pretty quickly and it will loose any power advantage. On top of this you have to carry the weight of the water also. I would say the main reason they are used for anything other than drag racing may be due to intercooler size restrictions.

Thanks,
