Agree on stripping the intercooler, lots of ricer guys have done this in the past and reported lower temps, I've seen old black intercoolers stripped and they can come up looking new. I would highly doubt you would notice the difference in performance though but it should look pretty sweet!

People are suggesting you change intercooler largely cause of the stock 930 intercooler's core, which is poor in comparison to more modern cores that will flow better and cool the charged air more efficiently. Lots of info on the stock intercooler here, most pretty negative...
