Default IC: how big is optimal?

How does one design the best intercooler size... I mean what if the entire hood was a ginormous IC? Stoopid, but how big is too big?

Good article, one thing he didn't mention though was thickness. A thicker narrower (as you are looking at the thing from the front of the car) IC will have the same heat rejection capacity as a very wide narrow IC, but less lag because the air has to travel a shorter distance. If the car is going to be a street racer/dragster, throw the biggest honking IC you can at it. For road racing or auto-x, smallest you can do that will still flow adequately, thicker is better.
