    I think if you find a color that closely matches the stripes that it would look really good blue.

    I'd paint it black(maybe even gloss black) so it looks fresh and clean.
    And while you're at it with underhood appearance mods, reroute that TB coolant bypass under the smooth bellows and ditch the AIR system!!

    you should paint the valve covers blue and the coil brackets silver to match the car. that would look sick

    You could be really creative and alternate the humps in the intake with silver and blue... or just do the whole thing in blue, but keep the theme going.

    Looks like some of your EGR/AIR system is gone??? Why not all of it?

    It is gone i just gotta pull out the hose....and you think if i alternate the colors it would be a little too much?


    And i was thinking of relocating the coil packs...not sure yet but yes i was gon paint them too along with the valve covers

    Well, if you have the intake not yet on the car, you could try to just see what alternating the colors looks like, but using sliver duct tape and blue painters tape. Just a thought. It might be a little much, but certainly something only you would have!

    that actually is a really good idea 666. since its off the car, just go crazy with color till you find something you like
