If the engine is idling, I'm guessing inlet temps don't really matter...? (noob trying to learn here) i.e. inlet temps matter when you're trying to prevent detonation, but at idle the maps are totally different (from WOT)?

I think they are running out of things to make videos about... Time to go buy some stock in black spray-paint though

That may be, but I was still surprised by their no airflow results. I expected some difference, but the difference they got was shocking.

Yeah, it makes you wonder if there was a coating that was black that also increase convective heat transfer how well it would do. Like the swaintech BBE.

who cares about the non-airflow results? lol low IAT's at idle - like a boss?

But really, my biggest concern with painting an intercooler is that it looks like crap after like 6 months. bugs, chips, bleh

It was actually pretty well done. A good, controlled experiment.

Drag racers mainly. But they should probably be using a water/air intercooler flowing ice water.

I still don't understand what the heck the point was of measuring air temps in front of vs behind the intercooler. IF anything they should be measuring flow, cause you want it to not block airflow to the heat exchangers behind it.
