Wow! looks like you're gonna be a little busy this winter! Have you tried Tracy (sc2150) for the IM polishing?

Yea he doesn't do it anymore since it is too time consuming lol. I'll have to do a little research and see how to go about doing it myself.

Maybe you'd be better off just painting the manifold? If you polish you also run the problem of having to upkeep it when it dulls out

15 flat but get this my reaction time is a .022 and 60 ft that time was a 2.0....so I believe it was all driver error.... Meaning I didn't get out of the hole quick enough but on the bright side the reaction & 60 ft times aren't horrific lol next up are the brembo and mace ported intake manifold upgrades

Dude my reaction times are horrible haha. Not to mention I spin out of the hole and when it shifts into 2nd gear. I need to get some suspension upgrades too before I go back.

I decided to try my luck at polishing my own IM since I didn't want to spend a crazy amount of money for it to be done. I only did the lip down where the throttle body and IM meet. I started out doing it by hand with sandpaper and then decided eff it and bought some drill attachments to do it. So far I am pretty happy with how the lip looks. I still have to polish it with a polishing compound but for it being sanded down it looks pretty good (atleast I think so). So here is how the lip looks. I may just end up polishing the runners and figure out what I wanna do with the rest.

The lip looks real good but looks like it'll be a lot of work to do the whole thing! Good luck with it!

Looking forward to seeing how your next round of mods turns out!!! I'm getting antsy already with this winter crap.

Severe withdrawls already here in chittenango! It's so hard not to peel the cover off of the car and go for a joyride especially since there's been no snow!

Thanks me too! I hear ya on the withdrawls man lol. Idk what is worse though being able to see it everyday and know you can't drive it (like you) or having it stored 300 miles away knowing you can't do either haha(me). When I go home for Christmas I plan on taking back with me my valve covers and my billet pedals. Gonna get the pedals powder coated and paint my valve covers.

Totally didn't see your comment sorry.

I thought about painting it but idk I want something that would be an immediate eye catcher and I think if it is polished it will def do that, after all isn't everyone attracted to bright shiny things haha. Hopefully the upkeep just means keep cleaning it with the polishing compound which I don't mind doing as long as it is every now and then. I guess if it does become a problem I can alwasy get it powder coated chrome or something lol.
