    Plenum looks like shit. I will be replacing the intake soon so I thought that it would be a good time to clean it up as well. What suggestions do you guys have (other than replacing it).

    you can polish it up.

    I like the looks of my Accufab piece.

    you can also get rid of the EGR shit?!

    Exhaust Gas Recirculation.

    Emissions stuff.
    there's a tube from the manifold to the TB there, and a valve thingie to the right of it.

    it's definatley sucking.
