I finally got it on with the help of a buddy. It's not as invisable as I thought it would be.
The anodizing really hardens the fins. There were some that I didn't get a chance to straighten before the process. I used to be able to staighten them with my finger nail, but now I need needle nose pliers.

damn that looks good.....i never would have thought to do something like that...i like it

It's not a bad idea if you get an aftermaket IC. It makes the fins hard as fu(k greatly increasing its durability. If your thinking about doing this, contact an anodizer to see if a polished endtank will take the dye better. My endtanks were raw casting and didn't come out as dark as the core.

No. Anodizing doesn't really coat, or thicken, the intercooler with anything, like paint, so it doesn't change it's physical properties/thermal efficency. Dark colors absorb light energy so I guess I was drag racing towards the sun there might be a difference.
There's links in my old thread about anodizing;
