Yes, but you don't want to do that. An air to air is designed for high air flow rates for the charge air and cooling air, which means larger spacing for fins and plates to lessen the pressure drop. For forcing water through those large gaps you will not have as efficient of a heat transfer. The water side of a good AWIC will tend to have tighter spacing and designed for water as the heat transfer medium, while the charge air side will see a similar flow regime as an air to air intercooler.
