    my new painted ls6

    Knock sensors went out so i upgraded to the ls6- figured id paint it beforehand also to go with my silver and red theme i got going. Turned out nice- kinda different with the silver stripes but not to crazy. This was my 1st performance mod, so i dont even have a lid yet--its coming tho- just showing it off a little

    I sanded on it alot to get it alot smoother than it was, then took it to a local shop and had them paint it. Only cost 50 bux. It took em forever to get around to doing it, but it was cheap so i guess i couldnt complain..

    Lil more top end power, but isn't as noticeable unless you have a few mods done like H/C etc.

    Can add 10rwhp or so, not much.

    It looks great man, they did a good job on painting it now you need to get you an intake, I would probably paint the lid to match it if I were you.

    Looks great I painted mine, but didn't have the patients to sand it smooth. Later on when I do a LS6 engine swap I'll take it off and sand it right.


    I like the powder coating of the TB idea.

    Yeah for 50 bucks I'm sure they didn't care to turn that quickly. But good deal.

    update

    Well i finally got around to putting my lid on. Im not all the way done cause i want my slp letters to be red also but heres a look after i got it put on- with my red smooth bellow. On a side note- i expected better fitment from slp- i had to do so much BS to get this thing on, even the smallest thing like inserting the plug in the side to block the air hole was SO hard because the hole was to small. I figured id have this on in minute- man was i wrong!?! o well its on now- What-cha think of my bellows?

    why is it that you have a plug in there and I have a hose plugged into mine that routes around to the drivers side, over top the master cylinder and back to the engine??? what is that?

    Looks sick. I like the silver stripes on the intake.

    I may paint my LS6 intake, when I ever get one. Might this Spring. My car is black, tho, so instead of silver I'd leave that part black.
