Question powdercoated underside of intake...

I had my Ford 302 EFI aluminum lower intake manifold powdercoated (clear). When I picked it up, I discovered that they had coated the underside of it, which I hadn't anticipated that they would do. The gasket sides and injector holes were taped off. Will it be a problem that the inside part of the intake was powdercoated?
Thanks in advance.

HEY MAROON: Powder coat cures at 450 degrees F and your intake manifold doesn't get that hot. I would say that it would give you good slick surface like a polished and ported job... LUCKY YOU...DAVE

Cool

Cool !
It is very smooth and slick feeling. I knew that powdercoating took 450 degrees, but I failed to think that it won't be that hot under the intake
unless I have a big problem !!
Thanks for your responses.

That is a good thing. By having it coated it will help it deflect heat Less heat more power. I have read articles that have talked about the benefits. It may not be big but it all helps
