Intercooler question

I know the intercooler is a very important part of a turbo engine. I've been searching through the message boards about them and a question came to my mind: I'm planning on going either with a t3 turbo or a t3/t4 hybrid turbo later on. Witch intercooler would be better? A powerstroke intercooler, or a TC intercooler that's been converted to air/water cooling with a a 3" outlet and a slip on style nipple for BPV?
And witch ever one is better, who sells them and how much?

The air/water intercooler is the best for track use. I prefer air/air for street use. The powerstroke cooler is too much work. Trust me, I know. The Buick GN cooler is a very good air/air cooler that will support big HP. It can also be mounted withjout having to rotate the upper intake and the piping will still be fairly short(not that it makes any difference).
