That looks really nice. Are you gonna do the inlet manifold too?

That car looks really clean.

I'm looking at getting a csl airbox/tune next year, so I probably won't paint it

Nice result!

I was going to do the exact same color on mine. I'm just waiting this spring to be able to paint it outside.

I'm also going to do some vent/slot/hole in mine to lower the coil temp.
