That will also cause the intake to retain alot more heat.The polish creats a "mirror " effect on the inside as well as the outside.It will reflect the heat back inside.

Just wanted to say that if you paint your intake it's a PITA to reinstall. I have a TON of touch up to do once I'm all done... The lifting chains scratched it, the wiring loom scratched it, a bunch of scratches, now I wish I didn't paint it.. Think before you try this one guys..

I would say Powder coating is a much better option for durability, but you can still scratch that..
