I will be painting the intake the same color as the stock one I have on there now which is a high heat silver I bought from Discount Auto

Didn't really clean it too much...just took a lot of the parts off and reapinted them. Also replaced a few things like the coolant overflow tank, battery, distributor boot etc.

Dont think I am going to powdercoat it as it will not match the other accessories like the A/C compressor, alternator, brakes lines that I painted.

Drive it once a month, and keep on cleaning/repainting.
