    ok man well when i get the money gathered up for the inlet pipe, ill get back to you on that..

    what color do you think would look the best? black probably? only colorful things in my engine bay are my red plug wires and a blue ford emblem that is small and on the other side of the engine.. im thinking black would look sweet.

    I think my Procharger and intercooler piping would look great done like that. I might be contacting you to do it but it will probaly be awhile. Im broke after my wheels and adding the Procharger.

    ya it would look hott.... the only thing that sucks about reflective chrome is that you cant use a clear coat cuz it makes the finish dull and there wont be a shine but all the other colors with clear coat works awesome

    well the first thing people notice is how awesome it looks whens it nice and clean ..... sencond it protects metals that regular paint cant do cuz eventually the paint will chip off but powdercoat stays on cuz its baked on and with a clear coat finish you basically just made it 2x more durable.... as long as you clean it and treat it like is it was chrome it will last for years
