Heat coating on an intercooler?

I am getting ready to coat my IC pipes, turbo and up pipes. While I was at the coating shop, the owner asked if I was interested in trying a heat dissipation coating on my intercooler also. He said it's black in color and that this coating actually pulls heat out of the metal better. They have started using it on radiators and intercoolers w good results.

Has anybody tried this? How much of a difference would it make over bare aluminum? Is it worth the cost of coating?

I seem to remember something about Banks using a coating on their IC for better heat transfer also. Not that I think it's a good idea just because Gale does it, but I'm just curious if it works.

Re: Heat coating on an intercooler?

I can understand fins, or something that increases the surface area of an object. But I cant believe that a coating will help pull heat out of an object any better than the original surface would. Its attached to that surface in the first place. If anything adding something should make it less able to shed the heat.
