If I remember correctly you have been in contact with Vararam regarding this topic. Did they tell you about any disadvantages by going with a breather / deleting the clean air line?
I spoke with Patrick in length. The short of it is, ideally, the keep the line. It would make more power. By the way, they are coming out with a spacer that should help increase power. Hes been testing it for a year on his personal car. Should be out soon. One thing you could perhaps do is rotate the couple 45 degree towards the right as I did and then run the line under the throttle body attached to a cool fitting. So that it's not sitting on top.

By the way, when I was research the best case scenario, one thought was to run the line under and into the actual intake but he discouraged me from that also.

Can't wait to see it! Take your time install them with all the fresh paint. Patience is your friend.

Tony was referred to them for a different item. In conversation, I mentioned that I was looking for rails without the logo. He said they make them for other companies and he could get me one. You'll need to call and speak with Jim.

Big difference a what a few hours of sanding will do.



This was all done by hand, 120, 320, 400, 600 and the gray painters scotch bright. I test fitted it on the car and it looks REALLY nice. I relocating the harness that goes over it to feed the alternator. So that area is going to look really clean. Can't wait to show you guys.



I have some stuff coming in the mail thats going to make your life a lot easier to relocate these harness. Stay tuned.

Nathan, OMG!!! That bracket is beautiful! You could make some money polishing out parts...not that you would want to, I'm sure. Are you going to clear-coat the aluminum so that it stays looking that way?

So my newest present came in the mail yesterday - polished evap line. Hoping to install it today, but it's balls cold so that may not happen.









I got this lovely piece from member Nathan Moreno - who's totally awesome by the way If you haven't already, you need to check out his Project Cleaning the Clutter in Our Engine Bay Bay thread. It's insane how much detail he's putting into it, easily one of the top DIYs on here.

These are some before & in progress pics of the evap line. Again, thank you so much Nathan.

I brushed the blocks and polished the tubes



In this picture, I still hadn't polish the inlet tube.

I'll post before/after pics once I get it installed

Definitely just for personal project, LOL. Not sure if I'll clear coat or anodize in a gray or black yet. The hard part is done, it's now cleaned of all inspections.

Here the bracket installed:



Here you can see how I rerouted the harness under a cavity.



Looks much cleaner without the harness running over the bracket.



One more shot.



I guess the only thing that stinks is that now the water pump and alternator bracket looks like crap. Oh No, I shouldn't had said that knowing myself that will be my next project.

Factory exhaust stick out like a sore thumb, looking at different brands.

I updated the OP with a listing of most of the parts I've used. I'm still working on getting all of them but, it's a start.

Nathan, when can we get a sneak peek at the 90 degree boots you're going to put over your injector connectors?

Mike, I did it all you could say by hand. I took a sheet of 120 grit and taped it a work bench This way it wouldn't move. Than I ran the flat part back and forth till I got rid of everything. If you look at the stock part, it had about four different counters. I keep sand til it was one flat surface. Than I repeated the process with 320, 400, 600. Next, I used the "gray" scotch brite which is the equivalent on say 400 to finish it off.

Tip, playing music in the back round help get into a rhythm and your not focused on the tediousness as much. Kinda like doing cardio workout on a treadmill.

The nooks and crannies I had to do by hand to get in there. Didn't take pics. I try getting some action shots when I do the alternator bracket.

The way I see it, it's something that will take a few hours but, if it's a one time deal and its done, than what the hey... You enjoy the results every time you pop the hood. So it better than going to a movie because you spend the sometime but you only enjoy it once. PPlus you get the cardio workout, LOL.

Seriously.....LOL, you must be joking somebody asked exactly the same question yesterday and it was answer on post #292. Than they deleted it after 572HP answered it. The first time on post # 177 by brantley847 and deleted after Rotofab answered it. (see Below).

Nathan, any clearcoat on that alternator bracket when you finished it? Also did the pulley have to be removed or not to get the bolts out?

Paul, I didn't need to pull the pulley to remove the bracket. I did get the tool to remove it but that will be to detail the actual pump. I'm painting the reservoir tank in a satin black and the pump perhaps in a textured black to give it some contras. I'm not sure if I'll leave the bracket in a natural finish or anodize it black or gray. It will depend after I do the water pump and alternator and alternator bracket and what color I powder coat the intake. Still deciding on colors. I got the intake clam shell yesterday from the powder coater. We were using it as a test panel. The finish was texture black and I'm glad we did the test because I didn't like it. I'm leaning towards a “Jet Anthracite” for the intake. It's a little falter than "Gun Metal" l think it would complement the high tech - mechanical look I'm shooting for. Will see....... will be doing another test panel.

Here's a pic. Please, any thoughts or input are definitely welcome.
