I've been told the same thing before...I wonder how big the
radiator would have to be to avoid pressure drop?  You'd also
want a bigger inlet and outlet than a standard radiator, and
you'd want it to fit in front of your "real" radiator...

Esslinger makes an "all-in-one" radiator/intercooler that's
probably exactly what we need, but it's over $1000.  At least
that would make solving the "fan for the intercooler" problem
really easy...
