Painted my Vmax ported throttle body

well after receiving my Vmax ported throttle body from (mike norris motorsports) i decided to send it off to roto-fab for paint. mike at roto fab has painted or hydro graphixed all off my parts.

Vmax did a great job of spiral porting it,,,,the cast part in the front of throttle is gone and now all of it is ported ,,,,nice job!

here are some pics of the finished product

That's looks great! How much did that run you to have it painted?

Any completed pics yet? I did try to find someone to chrome plate the plenum cover. The one I was thinking of is now out of business. He used to chrome plate plastic parts. I doubt that he is the only one capable of doing it, but I don't know of any other.

Wow! That looks great! Roto-Fab does excellent work! I have the exact same engine covers, in RJT! How's the performance of the TB? Worth the upgrade?

Lookin sweet! I was wondering what bolts you would use for the throttle body. I like the approach of including some chrome without the entire engine compartment looking like a mirror! So...what's next?
