This isn't really true. A bad intercooler can have so great a pressure drop
across it that it requires the compressor to work harder to maintain the
same boost at the manifold, which means charge temps will be even higher. If
the intercoolers thermal efficiency can't decrease the increased charge temp
below what would be with no intercooler. It becomes a hinderance to the
system.

Granted, about the only way to accomplish this is by using an inercooler way
too small for the application, or an extremely badly designed one, but it is
still easily possible.
