one thing though, you might want to paint the heat shield to the headers silver the rust is kinda funky lookin w/the rest of the engine looking so nice. they have high heat ceramic spray paint at like autozone/pepboys that would work great.
Yea, about the manifold I just left it sitting there because it will get replaced by a new header when I have money for it. No reason to paint a pos when I can have a nice gleamingly new japspeed, or bosal...or rippmods .
I really hate that manifold...its so nasty...
Anyway I think I might go with the Ripp kit, because it comes with a new header (duh) & a high flow cat! I'll get the whole shebang, won't that look nice...yes, yes it will.
About the hood, the stains are omg impossible to get off. I would have to sand them off and then repaint . I might detach it one day and do that I guess. Nice comparison though, the hood is what the bay looked like except 10 times worse!
The only thing that sucks about the engine I have now is that some parts are rusted, and some aren't. Some paint is chipped, and some isn't chipped. I have to take my time taking the parts off one by one, derusting them/polishing/obsessive toothbrush, and then painting them and so on.
I love it though, so no problems here. I could sit outside all day.
Well, I myself have never personally seen it done to a 3sfe yet so I really have no idea if it would work for sure. None the less though it does seem like it would. Only one way to know for sure...lottery here I come!
