I got to thinking about heat management today. We spend too much time and money trying to dissipate heat from every inch of our engine bays... Or on the contrary we completely overlook it. I often see images of gold taped charge pipes and intake manifolds, but something I seldom see is taped intercoolers. I think there may be an advantage (although slight) to wrapping the non exchange surfaces of our intercoolers in a reflective tape. Even if you only wrapped the top and bottom you would deflect heat from the engine and heat from the road on those two surfaces. Also considering that there is no insulating value to the tape, there shouldnt be any downside to this. If you have thought of this, tried this, or know of someone who has, I would like to hear your thoughts, opinions, theories and conclusions on this matter. Also if you have a product recommendation, that would be nice too. I have personally been considering Heatshield Products Cool Gold tape, but it seems pretty pricy compared to other options on the market.
