intercooler question

is it ok to paint your intercooler???? i wanna paint it black to add to the "stealth" look i guess you could say.

but if it is ok to paint is there a type of paint i should use. B/c i have some engine enamble (not sure i spelled that right) paint (high temp) that i could use but would that effect the fins on the intercooler?

any insight would be helpful

thanks

I used silicone based paint on mine... it transfers heat pretty good.

Just dont put too much on it.... my IC is flat black, and you cant see it at all.

Mine is painted black from the factory.
I haven't installed it yet so that's all the input I can provide. :)
