Home A/C a-coil for a air compressor air dryer?

I have been reading it is a good idea to cool the air coming from the pump before it goes to the tank and have a water trap after the cooler. Alot of guys have used an automotive evaporator or condenser to cool the air. I have an old a-coil from home unit and was thinking of using it. I was going to plumb it between the pump and tank and have a water trap before it goes into the tank. Also would add a fan to blow into the a-coil just like your furnace does to dissipate the heat. Of course I would have to eliminate the expansion valve on the a-coil to remove that restriction.
Any thoughts?
