you would need to see a cross section to have it make sense but the bar and plate core is just that...a Bar and plate square section with channels to route air. I will try and find you a nice cross section here soon to show what I mean.

Some JDM companies do exactly what you are speaking of but they are a tube and fin core that can't carry as much air.

To give you an idea most factory cores (N54 included) are tube and fine based. its a much cheaper core to manufacture.
