Seems as if I read that coating an intake will affect its performance...

What affect would powder coating have on an intake manifold ???

Will heat discolor Powder Coating???

A powdercoated intake retains the heat more, so you may lose a horse or two, but it is easier to keep clean.

Eastwood has a powder coat called "Almost chrome"... I saw it on a manifold and it look goooood.

We may go with a translucient blue to match my car color...
