I think it will undoubtably work better! But i thought the main goal for an intercooler was to maximize the surface area and keep the core thickness down to a minimum, surely the thicker you go you will get hotter areas in the middle? I would look at what Secan do, being the leading intercooler manufacturers on the planet, and try and replicate it. I'm not qualified to even give an opinion but logic would say large and thin would do the job better than small and fat (and no we aren't talking about sex )

And it's what Protomotive try and do with theirs
