Is the material used for intercoolers the same as they use in radiators???

I was just wondering If I could fab up a some aluminum end rails and have a radiator shop shorten a used Aluminum 3 core radiator.

Anyone ever heard of anyone doing this??? Or personally have tried this...

I am just dreaming though... My car is a N/A 5.0 and is going to stay that way.... but I have dreams of a turbo 4 cylinder notch back rice eater!! I am also the type of person who enjoys tinkering and making something rather than buying something, If I can..

The radiator material is made for moving low amounts of water slow. intercoolers are made for moving large amounts of air very fast. From what i have read the fins on the radiators aren't big enough to flow enough for air. I think i read it on DSMTalk.
