Batmans mods

I finally got a chance to take some pictures of my mods, so i thought I would start a journal.

First mod, Elite Catch Can. Install was so easy, a caveman could do it. Took me 20 minutes.

Second mod, CAI intake. Another simple job. took me 30 minutes.


Third mod was a V max ported throttle body. no pic needed. 10 minute install. So worth it.

fourth mod, Heritage Grill, and batman emblem.

I took my time with this one. 1 hour install. So much easier if you jack up the front and remove wheels so you have room to work.

and the moment i've been waiting for. Got my engine cover back from the painter. I gave him a picture of what i wanted, and he did an excellent job.

its hard to see in these pics, but there is some nice sparkle to it in the sun from the metal flake he added.

if anyone wants there engine cover painted, pm me if you want the guys info.

When I went to pick it up, I knew it would look good, but was concerned about the chevy logo taking away from paint job. I must say, it looks better than I expected.
