would powdercoating a fmic and the pipes affect the performance? Friend wants to do it to his eclipse so the fmic blends in with his car
Another excuse to get the mesh is because you can create a venturi effect to cool down the air. A tightly woven mesh should help create an excellent pressure drop (thus cooling the air, which is why A/C works). Another reason to get a tight mesh is to help keep rocks and bugs and shit from ruining the intercooler91T4 said:Black=better radiation but this is offset by the extra layer of paint. If you must paint it, use radiator paint (has higher conductivity); if you are doing this for the sleeper effect, you can get some steel mesh, paint it black and place that on front of the intercooler.
Well heat sinks in computers and elsewhere are often black...I'm not 100% sure but I believe it still absorbs heat better even without light.boosted-bird said:Also, why would a dark color matter if the intercooler is hidden back in the depths of the bumper and doesn't have sunlight blasting on it all day.
Thats not the idea..LastDrift5o said:we all know black doesn't reflect any if not little light.
