Re: anyone know what inter cooler/ charge cooler this may be? (AlbqG60)

Technically, its not an "inter cooler" you're after, its an "After Cooler" that you want. The "inter cooler" usually goes inbetween 2 inductors(charger), on a sequensial charger setup.
Yeah, yeah, I know... you guys are thinking "Who Care's Book Worm Joe!"... ahhhh... go and bit a honda!

Here it is:

It looks familiar to me... dunno where I've seen it before though, real life or a mag. It's a Jetta, right?

its a stock/factory VW part off diesels and rally golfs i believe. not sure if they were exclusive to "euro only", but they can be had if you search long enough.
There is a G60 forum, you would get more help there

its designed for an A2, and A2 rad support if you can see where it mounts.
thats why there may be issues when trying to make it fit in a rado

Is that a Air-to-water IC? I would hope so.

no its not an air to water
EDIT: also that pic is of a G60 gti, green/silver it can be seen at any of the east coast shows like waterfest and h20.

Good luck finding one of those setups...VW Motorsport stopped making them about 3 years ago. Last time I checked on one the seller was asking $1500

these intercoolers ARE NOT VWMS intercoolers. they are off the golf GTD which is a Turbo Diesel GTI sold strictly to europe. they come in 4dr configurations as well.
i'm not sure if these came on the GolfG60 but it seems entirely possible.
my cousins have a couple of these cars in europe, and i'd be more than willing to take some pictures and measurements/part numbers etc when i visit them this year.

These intercoolers came on Golf G6os with air-conditioning,these are different to the ones on diesel Golfs,and are definately not VW Motorsport ones.

Technically it IS an intercooler. The def of intercooler is:
in·ter·cool·er [íntr klr ] (plural in·ter·cool·ers) noun
device for cooling fluids: a heat exchanger that cools a fluid between successive stages of compression or chemical reaction
Intercoolers are placed between turbos or SCs and the engine. Engines are nothing more than compressors in which a chemical reaction takes place during combustion. Intercooler is the correct word.
