I did what alot of other guys here have done.

But I routed the wires where it splits around the oil fill cap to what I believe is a better position.

Also mounted the evap solenoid to the ECM tower which I haven't seen anyone else do yet.

haha... The hood seems to do a great job of that. I was installing my maggie last weekend and was amazed at how clean the engine was considering that I had never actually cleaned it before

Look up mike the powdercoater in the vendor section. He is the one that does everyone's calipers. He also powdercoats the LS intakes.

Well, I got my flat black powder coated polish and ported throttle body today. I actually mail them my last Wednesday and received it today. Great turn around time.



I installed it and the car ran great. But I'm not sure if I feel any difference on the throttle response on the butt dyno. I order 4 ARP stainless blot to replace the OEM. I guess at least it will look good, LOL.

I got mine back together today got the second T/B and the valve covers back from powder coat. Installed the headers while it was down got some Russell classic black traded hose and re routed the oil catch can hoses. Cleaned up the wiring on the passenger side and for the coils. Also installed a set of JBA 8mm plug wires and a set of pulstar adi1 iridium plugs. No problem with the T/B this time. I'v got a polished cover for the brake fluid reservoir and a billet tentioner pulley on the way, and a few other things to get after that. Oh and add a 3 piece front and fender filler panels and yea I'm going to black out around the rubber hood stops.

Roctrux, holly Shix man! You have been busy. What a difference since your last update. I like the little touches like the red bolts on the trottle body and coil packs. With the all the red white and blue action going on, I feel I should stand up and solute it, LOL. Very nice job all around, congrats.

By the way, what did you do for the dip stick? Me like.

Thanks I just painted the top of it silver to get rid of the ugly yellow. I should of took the tube to powder coat to but I didn't think about it till I was about to pick up the other stuff, I like the idea of powder coating the manifold I'm going to talk to my powder coat guy about doing mine.

Where did you get that piece to cover the radiator? Did it already come IBM?

each to their own....but I personally dont see the point in doing anything under the hood, it still looks like a plastic monster took a dump in there....the only thing I would be proud to "show" off would be some nice fat turbos or a Whipple supercharger. Other than that, there's nothing different about anything under the hood, and if there is, its just coloring. Now the older cars, with no vacuum lines, no plasticky stuff, can look good to me....but again, just a personal preference.
