From the Bell Site:

Can an intercooler be painted?

Certainly. One might find a small loss of efficiency if the core is painted, but likely this would be less of a difference than the repeatability of measurement. By all means, paint the end tanks, but preference suggests the core remain exposed.
How about masking off the core and just powder coating the tanks and plumbing? Powder coating is pretty thick, how about a light coat of paint on the core?
