    Intercooler plumbing , chrome or brushed aluminum ?

    I'm trying to get the tubing for my SC to IC.
    Should it be chrome or brushed ?
    Which would dissipate heat more ?

    Would the chrome be reflective to the ambient heat and let the tube cool more ? .. probably would look better too.
    I'm sure the SC to IC is going to get hotter than the hull temps.

    ambient heat has no effect. the air is moving at high speed inside the plumbing and has no chance to get heated by your engine compartment.
