Heat Conductive paint?
« on: October 16, 2001, 06:54:00 PM »

  Does anybody know of any heat conductive paint? My roommate has an intercooler that he wants to paint black so that it's harder to see and it attracts less attention.  Most ordinary spray paints for high heat application have ceramics or silicones in them that insulate heat - not a good thing for what is basically an air radiator.  I think anodizing would work but it's still sorta shiny. Some matte heat conducting finish that can withstand high heat would be great. thanks guys.

check into engine paint, not Jet-hot but something actually designed to paint the engine block and manifolds. most of these paints are purely designed to stop rust. other than that, find a mod shop

sleepers are old skool, these days are all about tech and very good installs. i know a buy out here that builds jap street racers and he has custom build intercoolers that are as wide as the front end, pretty sweet looking.

im about to tell you about the greatest story ever told about sleepers.

I grew up in the chicago area and we used to  street race on Lake-Cook Road. Back in those times my good friend had a z28 with a 3-71 blower, nitrous all sitting on an aluminum corvette motor built by simpson racing motors. One night this guy with a fake wood trim station wagon challenged for 2 bills, we agreed. well this station wagon was bone stock looking on the outside with a stock interior and tinted windows.  He starts his car and it sounds like a big block with an agressive cam, my buddy was sporting about 500hp with the nitrous. so they line and launch all of the sudden this car is loud as sh*t and burries us. after the race we check out his car and he has a 455 with a 6-71 blower, nitrous, duel 1050 dominators and the engine was installed low in the car to clear the hood. this prolly have 650-700 horsepower in a car that looked just like your grandma's car. that is the greatest sleeper i have ever seen.  the end

hahahaha, now thats damn sleeper..lmao.  i remember one night at the races down here(the good ones are held basically in the middle of the everglades..some place call Saga bay)... some guy comes in a UGLy a$$ rust filled Gremlin.  The thing had a small block chevy with a NASTY sounding blower and i dunno wut else done to the engine with a 9 inch rear end.  it was a damn trailer queen that he creeped at the end of the bay and drove it around....no other big boys were out there so he didnt race... but it was a crazy sight to see.  I wish i would have seen that thing run.  It really isnt a sleeper with a 9inch rear and slicks, but it was just too funny...lol

omg, that sounds funny, did he have the blower, carbs and funnel sticking out of the hood? and he must of had the shortest axles around with that setup LOL, i guess the only thing funnier would be a Pacer with a big block  hehe

Hey, has anyone everthought of adding some peltiers on an intercooler?  I know that the peltiers wouldn't be able to cool the intercooler down that much, but If you put them on the top and/or bottome of the intercooler with a heatsink attached you wouldn't need a fan.
