Default sandwiching, not enough flow?

I'm debating on sandwiching an intercooler between the condenser and radiator, any tested results floating around online? Looking for real results, not just ideas.

No results, but I'm doing just that. Already have the IC between the condenser and radiator, just no turbo plumbed in yet. I don't think flow through the IC will be any different than if it was in front of the condenser. I can't see it being a problem.

tube and fin has a slightly higher pressure drop due to less flow, but not too worried with the size of the core I will be using if I go the sandwiched route.
