Ultimately, it doesn't matter. The temp difference is insignificant and it's a centrifugal supercharger setup which creates far FAR less heat than a turbo, so it's not nearly as important.


Not to mention, black simply looks better and doesn't scream to people you're boosted...

I agree with Poodles. I remember a guy in the MR2 forums (or maybe it was the Audi forums) that recorded before and after IC temps with different types of paint. Nothing really made a difference. For the most part, you are painting the front face of the IC, not the majority of the surface area which is the sides of the fins. That's where the cooling occurs. Now, if you load the thing with coats upon coats of paint you might notice a difference.

I always thought you needed a thermal paint, but this guys numbers didn't lie. I'll have to go search for it bc it's always good to have numbers to look at.

Oh, and to voice my opinion on what to put on the IC, black is always cool but I never mind graphics on an IC. I like their phrase "Built by passion, not by committee". Or you could put "Hachi-roku". Or how about "Tofu delivery" haha. Also saw a pretty cool japanese "rising sun" painted on an IC. Googled "intercooler graphics" and it was the first to come up but I couldn't find the image to link to.


EDIT: Didn't find what I was originally looking for, but found this video on Carthrottle. Looks like its about the same when the car is moving but helps even more when its stationary.

If you are so proud of the boxer, why not paint the boxer symbol on it.

I agree that black looks better, and I agree the temp difference is pretty small, however painting an intercooler (or radiator) does not help it.

Here's a pretty decent video that pretty much sums up why:

First off, I didn't come up with the phrase:

http://proudofboxer.com

Second, I get that you're trying to be clever, but you come off as a d1ck.

Third, the boxer logo would look really nice, good idea.

Fourth, don't be a d1ck.

Um, I have researched it.. and I even posted a 10 minute long video that proves my point. Not sure if you are serious?

I had no idea it was an existing phrase as I've never owned a Subaru.
I wasn't trying to be clever or a ****. I was dead serious. If you want to advertise the boxer, use the symbol. Clean, simple, anyone "in the know" will get it.
That's the problem with forum posts. It's far too easy to have one or two negative posts make everything start looking like an attack. You read a voice inflection I didn't intend, although re-reading it, I can see how.

Cool, don't worry about it then, water under the bridge.

Just keep in mind that starting a sentence with "If you are so" comes off as a personal attack and I don't know you. "Maybe try a boxer logo instead of that phrase" would have come through just as clearly. I have tough skin, but I'm a fucking adult and don't take kindly to that sort of nonsense.
