Question Ceramic or Powder Coat the hotside intercooler pipe !

Ok so i'm doing a custom hotside intercooler pipe for my 6.4L and wanted to coat it when it gets done. My question is if I ceramic coat it the under hood temps will drop but the coating may prevent initial cooling before it hits the intercooler resulting in a higher egt then if uncoated. is this a negligible concern or something not to do? If I powder coat the pipe will it help under hood temps, aid in cooling the charge, or will it just look pretty?

What's the upside and downside to each coating?

I would say you need to powder coat the pipe to leave the heat escape. Under hood temps are warm regardless of one air pipe.
