    Josh, did you use hi-temp paint on the manifold or does it matter?

    Still calling up local junkyards for an ls6 or maybe a fast. If I didnt have all those 400000 bolts from the coil packs on the 98s I would have done this already. Looks good!

    I think the manifold looks better when its another color besides black but gloss black comes out pretty good... If i had to redo it over again... i would sanded a little more on the intake... but hey it came out good and i love the color of the 2... kinda jumps out at ya

    looks good and pretty familiar. A little more sanding would look great.
