The A/C core has been used a lot, nothing new here, and I know of one (made from a core from a ranger PU) that works really good and this guy had a real problem before due to poor line layout, he still has a bad setup on his lines but the A/C core takes care of the problem. The twist here is in using an Air conditioner to cool the core instead of just a fan and it sounds like it might work really well. If the cool air from the A/C unit is channeled into the core and then a GOOD water separator is used it should take care of most moisture problems even with very short lines, maybe not work as well as a dedicated drier unit but I would think it should do pretty good.

Two of your driers would work a lot better on the down stream side of the cooler since the two before the cooler are in warm air where the moisture is still in vapor form.
