Im sure its possible, but what would be something good to use? I was thinking that engine enamel like what Dal used on his valve covers would be good. the reason why i ask is im probably gonna dump my nitrous kit and get this...

i definitely wouldn't do that. whether its high temp or not..its trapping in heat. When i had my old mustang i wanted to paint the upper intake and many people said don't do it due to it creates more heat.

Good question, I was thinking of doing the same. Not red but black or silver...

powder coating would look good, but the heat issue could be a problem.

Yup I recently talked to a professional powdercoater, he told me tearing it apart would be the only possible way to powdercoat it.

Polishing it also makes it retain heat more than the satin poress finish.

i really dont see it making a huge diff. i could see if you were really big into getting the most out of what you have but, if you are just looking for a diff look, i say go for it.

well actually it just looks shitty. its a stock coba intake and the black behind the lettering is worn off for the most part and the intake itself just looks crappy. Maybe ill just clean it up then repaint the black part black or maybe dfg. It shouldnt make much of a diff it aint that much of an area
