Mine's pretty unimpressive. So much so that I made a Demotivator out of it:



A friend did me one better with the same picture:

Now that I think about it, the engine bay is a little different now...

1.) The cruise has been ghetto relocated

2.) A buddy with a '95M gave me one of his sets of chrome VC bolts and chrome crossover tube (*bling*

3.) I removed the stock heat shield over the exhaust manifold

The spark plug is made by a company called roberts and i bought it from r speed 4year ago. I have had my cam gears for 3 1/2 year and they have always been open. I used a "air cut off wheel" to cut the valve cover. The only negative i have found is that this makes more stuff i have to keep clean. With a vented hood things can get dirty quick.

Here's last year:



Here's this year:



Not quite done with it yet - still have to paint the new IC pipes, fabricate a new heat shield, install the shock tower brace, etc.

Cheers!

This is mine:



The greddy kit was installed in japan, I have done the polished cam cover and inlet manifold.

Still needs alot more doing. Thinking of selling and getting a completed job as someone I know wants mine.

I had a whole thread dedicated to my goodies. I have more stuff going out for powdercoating soon too! Turbo kit will be ordered this week and I have no idea what all is coming with it (Greddy kit) and when I dig through I know I'll find stuff that wants to be Candy Blue.

Anyways, here's a recap of mine.

Nice powder coating firedog! Mine's not shiny at all, makes me wonder if it's possible to wet sand/polish my current paint and give it some clear.

That shine is actually metal flake in the powdercoating. They can do all sorts of neat stuff now, those pics do the engine bay justice. My hoses were all oily and ugly, and things like the idle valve and throttle body are really gross right now. I should've polished them up.
