I wouldn't paint it.You should shine it up w/ a polishing kit.Does the turbo make your engine run any hotter?I would be afraid of the fan melting w/ the turbo and exhaust discharge so close.Looks real good man!

pretty sure its homemade as the only kit made was junk and the other is in development.

hes using parts off the "junk" kit and made improvements himself....I think if it was painted black, it'd look damn near OEM.

No idea how much it cost me all together. Im still improving the kit every day and On sunday it somes off to go in a box to be shipped away from me. Even after its off its all gettting coated and wrapped and all the pipes will be sanded painted and also heat wrapped. Just becuase Im getting rid of it doesnt mean I dont care anymore. I hope the new owner spends time on it like I did. And I hope they appreciate all the extra work Im still gonna be putting in it.

I commend your work 100%. Either way you color it, polishing or painting it like Caleb said, You can't go wrong. Both would look good. If it were me, I'd paint it black (I want no chrome on my truck.... the more black the merrier).

Freakin sweet dude. Im jealous.

Thanks. The Idea I had was to make it look like chevy put it there so no chrome for me. Ill most likely hit it with a spray bomb after I remove the whole kit. Hate to see it go but its big brother a T4 is waiting in the garage with a bigger motor. Ah hope the new guy will be happy with my craftmanship
