Would a fat intercooler/aftercooler work, or would they not be able to keep up?
BMW is using the water injection, but iirc, only on max boost. More on that here:

A water to air intercooler would be the "max cool" option:

Water to Air Intercoolers

Expense and complexity are part of the package in both cases.
