    I hope when you go to a dyno day it shows you lost torque



    being totally serial do you have a throttle body to match it, I never know when you go shopping to your local crack junky looking for some quick money.

    He didn't wanna give em up so i had to find my own
    Kooks headers in clearwater, fl got a small dent in em but still in nice shape
    and there's a shop down here with MLS gaskets for $20 for when i put them on
    You dont wanna know how much i paid

    enough off topicness
    i wanna hear opinions

    I tell you what, I think this paint scheme would actually look better under the hood of badass's car

    I think you should grind down the fast lettering and paint it gloss black.

    I was thinking make this one match badass's car and make him want it real bad, then trade him for his 92

    Gloss black is a little overdone
    I want to do black but more of a semi-gloss black to give it a stock look
    had another picture i wanted to show you, but cant find it anymore
    this is all i got and what i was thinking

    Yeah i got tired of seeing everyone do the same old gloss black
    Decided i would try this
    Think i'm gonna end up doing the semigloss black later on to get that stock look, but for now i'll see how i like this when it gets put on the car

    Great paint job Alex. That is going to match my engine bay perfectly when I copy your paint job! Can you PM me the paint color codes and brand that you used? I will call it, "The Tater Mod" I think it looks great. Dont listen to anything c5z28 has to say! Besides being a homosexual, he is an alcoholic and only posts when he ripped and hanging with his boyfriends.

    Yeah maybe i can get my own sticky
    Thanks for the compliments
    I'll probably end up going with satin black later on, but i'll try this out for now

    i'll just wait for c5 to chime in on this one

    Your best off using a sanding block
    just use a real gritty sandpaper like maybe 100 grit and keep working your way to finer and finer paper
    I would suggest sanding and painting the whole thing because if you just do the one spot you might end up with a different texture on that spot seeing that the intake is textured
