Added some blue to the engine bay!

Check it out, just installed new plug wires and some convoluted tubing, what a difference!





Tell me what you think. The intake manifold will be replaced with a powdercoated/port and polished blue one.

Laters,
Marc

Thumbs up

Looks great. Nice and clean! Although from the headlight covers looks like you need a paintjob now. Time to focus on the exterior a little...

That aint nothing, you should see how crappy the rest of the body looks! :mad:

Paint jobs cost alot, and although one is in the plans, I have no idea when. That's why I figured I would dress up the engine first. Also, everytime I have money, I think performance mods before looks.. I guess that's just the way I think. One of these days hopefully I will get the paint job, I cannot wait. I also want rims but all these things cost SO much more than modding the engine! I'd rather look ugly and go fast then look pretty and be slow. The car still looks pretty good, just a few rust spots and door dings.

I was thinking when I was driving around today, "Too bad people can't see under the hood when I drive since it looks so nice". LOL.

Oops, forgot to mention, the car was dirty when I took the shot, so that's why the headlight cover looks like that, it's much shinier when it's clean.

that's too much blue if your powder coating the intake manifold think about it?

I would powdercoat it white or silver...
