    Engine Bay Progress

    Just thought I'd show you the progress I've made on my engine bay.



    Anyone know where I can get the cross-over pipe and the throttle housing? (Black iron thing after the Power Pipe) chromed? I want those two pipes to look like the Power Pipe. I'd prefer just to buy the pipes and not exchange them.

    Looking good mate, the plenunm chamber and crossover pipe will polish as they are alloy beneath the black crackle.
    I powdercoated mine same colour as the car.
    I know where you can get a polished alloy oil cap too

    No probs mate, but I`m sorry I forgot to give you the dia the other night

    If you lived nearer to me, I could have got the hoses cheaper for you, but with the postage, there wouldn`t have been much difference.

    Yes, the black bit (plenunm chamber) is held on by 4 long torx bolts. Be careful when you remove it tho. cause the bottom face is machined surface.
