    Since I apparently have more money than I know what to do with, I've purchased the SVC intercooler (also planning on doing a hidden winch). I'm good with my choices, so not looking for any comments on that. What I am interested in is whether or not folks have been happy with leaving their aftermarket intercooler plain instead of blacking it out. I've looked at a bunch of pictures, and it looks like the intercooler is w/o a doubt unsubtly visible through the grill. IRL, those of you who haven't blacked it out: in your opinion does it look good, just OK, or wish you had blacked it out?

    Decided to Cerakote. Other than spending more money, didn't see a downside.

    Would love to hear about temps before / after cerakote. Ceramics are actually considered an insulator. I would assume that the ceramic coating, although cosmetically durable, would reduce heat transfer capability of the intercooler.
