Now with the IOM spray paint I decided to paint my plenum cover and I think it came out great! That finishes up my winter project on my intake manifold and I can't be happier . It looks fantastic!



Can't wait to install it

Woot Woot!!! Did my taxes and got some great goodies in store once I get the money haha. Of course the responsible thing is to save some of it and then spend the rest on:


BBK Ceramic Coated headers with hfc (may tackle the install myself, )

NS-1 Stripes (gotta find a place that can do it for me)

R1 Slotted/Drilled Rotors and Hawk ceramic pads

and a Racing helmet haha.


Safe to say things are about to get way better

O yea, in 2 weeks should be putting my car back together, getting it inspected and taking it out of storage

Thought I would show my build thread some love with a pic of my valve covers and intake manifold together haha. Since spring break just started I am planing on driving home this weekend to my dad's house and will hopefully put my car back together so I can really see how this looks sitting in my engine bay

Alright so FINALLY put everything back together, took my car out of storage and drove it around for a couple of hours. Now here are the highly inticipated pics of my engine bay now

With just the valve covers on:

Not gonna lie it was a huge pain to remove and re-install these dang covers. For anyone who wants to do it for themselves I highly highly highly recommend air tools, you will save a crap load of time, skin and won't curse as much.

Next threw on my IM


Then re-attached everything






.

Now what I have left to do is to re-arrange my catch can hoses and cover them with a black braided hose cover to make them look a little better. I also want to figure out a way to clean up the passenger valve cover since there are so many hoses and stuff on it. But if I must say....DAM IT LOOKS GOOD!!!!

Thanks! Mainly just the bolts on the back of driver side valve cover, those are a huge pain you have no idea. It takes some work getting a wrench in there and once you go there isn't that much room to work with...it literally took me twice as long to do 4 bolts it the back of that cover than to do all the rest along the side and front.
