Thermodynamics aside, Porsche used the water/air intercooler on the 934 due to space restrictions in the engine bay. The cooling fan was on top of the engine and the tea tray spoiler was not yet homolagated, forcing the location of ther intercooler to the front of the car. This configuration was retained from 1974 until development of the 934 stopped in 1976. Porsche continued to use water/air intercoolers on the 935 until the end of 1977 (taken from "Porsche 911 Story").
