Sandblasting intercooler pipes

I want to paint my intercooler pipes and was wondering if it was possible to have them sand blasted or even media blasted, or would it be to much for the aluminum to handle? I mostly want to do it to get the glue from taking the foil off the hotside pipe and also to clean them really well.

if you are worried about sandblasting it why not just get it soda blasted? should clean it up without pitting the aluminum?

Well that's what I was wondering, what would be the best to do to them without damaging the aluminum.

Would it be safe on the aluminum and take the glue and everything off too?
