hey guys im almost finished with the porting on my gen 3 sc and i would like to paint it but not sure if i should i wanted to paint it black but will that be a heat sink will it absorb more heat verses dissipate it your guys feedback would greatly be appreciated .
I painted my */C black and haven't noticed any difference in performance associated with locked in heat. I haven't felt it after running it to temp either. With it being painted your going have some heat locked in, if you put even a light jacket on your going to warmer than if you have just a shirt on
I think it'* been talked about before, or I saw it somewhere else and basically it'* such a thin layer that it won't really effect anything. The SC is gonna get hot and there isn't enough airflow under the hood to cool it down so a little paint isn't going to effect it
The only thing that seems to matter is surface prep. I used Krylon Wrinkle Paint. It hides all the chargers imperfections etc. it'* not rated for heat or anything else and I've thrown it all at this puppy.
