So, I just installed the Proalloy water to air intercooler. Today I'm putting on RLS mandrel bent ic tubes (try'in to offset some of that water weight). I purchased some of that cool gold heat wrap tape that Casey from ForcedFed put on his car (see pic below). My question is, I know I should wrap the tube that comes after the IC (the cooled charge) to keep the engine bay heat from re-heat soaking the tube. My question is regarding the tube that goes from the supercharger to the ic. It's got the hot charge but is it hotter than the engine bay temp and therefore I should leave the heat wrap OFF so some of the ic tube heat can dissipate out of the tube or is the engine bay temp higher and I SHOULD wrap it to keep the higher outside temps from heating the charge even more than the supercharger did?
