if you get a logo from them, maybee on the package its shipped in. cut it out and make a template. Some flat black Krylon after that, and you'll be golden.

Ken is right; make a stensile from thick construction paper or poster board. With an exacto knife cut out what ever letters you want.

as long as it's not made of aluminum, you can paint it easily. spray paint should work well.

I have never in all my days seen an intercooler that was not made af Aluminum.

And paint does not in any way affect the thermal efficiancy of the intercooler.

Trying to cut the letters out yourself might look like crap. Just buy some letter stensils from a craft store or Wallmart.

take it to a powder coating shop and bring the logo w/ you it will last longer. or you can do what i did and just scan it on your computer and adjust size.
