They are more efficient in that they usually have very little boost pressure drop as compared to an air-air setup. But when you have a turbo, who cares? Turn the boost up. On a centri supercharged system, that's a different story, as you can't just turn up the boost.
    Don't you mean air-air is more dependent on the car moving?

    They are both dependent upon the car moving. Circulating hot water to your aftercooler (which will happen when the car isn't moving / having air pass through the heat exchanger) is not any better than the hot air at idle with the air- to air system. This is totally off topic, BTW. That M5 is sick, it has a huge aftercooler, and will make insane power.

    It's cool, we have trouble staying on topic here Click here to enlarge

    However, when stationary , the water-air system isn't really being taxed as the engine is not generation huge heat.

    One thing I noticed.

    The cold side piping is dangerously close to the exhaust manifold of the rearmost turbo. There is a silicone coupler that is 2 inches away from the header, does anyone see that or is it just an optical illusion?
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.
