    looks nice. Go to kazaalite and download photoshop. It is very easy to resize pics in that program

    no shit. i wasen't talkin' 'bout that. if you look at the part of the header that is exposed where it bolts to the head, it looks the same color as the rest of the car.

    the h22's are cheap cuz they're very common. the longblocks are cheaper cuz they're not a complete swap. it's just the acutal engine.

    aiight, i was just curious cuz it looks like the exact same color as your car. i just thought i'd ask cuz i never herd of anybody painting their header cuz i thought the paint would just melt off or sumpin'... which it probaly would. but whatever, i was just wonderin'.
