How to remove clear powdercoat from intake

How can I go about removing clear powdercoat from an ALUMINUM intake? I've had several people recommend blasting it with black beautiy as it is hard to remove, but isn't black beauty and black slag too abrazive for aluminum?

The only reason I am removing it is because it's old, cracked, and discolored from years of use.

Thanks!

Oh, here's a pic of the car it's going on. The motor is coming out and getting freshened in the next couple weeks.

beautiful car man.... i would look at aircraft paint stripper to take off the powdercoating, and possibly follow that up with blasting to get a nice texture on it. but if you are planning to paint it, the stripper should be enough. i blasted a couple of my intakes with some green diamond sand and it left a really nice finish on the intake.

Seriously, check with Eastwood. I think they sell a stripper for powdercoating.
