Paint it Black

Would it help if you paint the engine black, and if so what else could you paint black? (Now i've got this song my head do do do do do...)

A black colored block helps to dissipate heat more evenly. But it also depends on what you're painting it with, as in what type of paint. They make paints that are available for radiators that don't inhibit the Heat transfer:
Eastwood Company

The short answer though is that the effect would be very minimal, probably not measurable against a control. But it sure would look nice.

Depends what they look like, I suppose. I like to joke that I'm glad I'm nearsighted rather than farsighted because I can always tell who I'm in bed with. My being a massive geek adds some irony to this as I'm hardly fighting women off.
