    I just though I would show you all how my y8 rebuild came out, comments and criticism welcome. Just wanna know what you all think

    btw the intake manifold is white and the header is ceramic black
    the car is a 97 si and is white, with a soon to be completed carbon fiber front end

    If its not to dark I will try to snap some more pics later, because I am going to be reinstalling her in about an hour

    if you paint the tranny green, you can have a christmas engine.

    i always think engines look the best if they look totally stock and people don't think any work has been done. oem ftw...

    the valve cover looks nice.

    i wouldnt paint the block anything but black or clear coat the bare metal.

    not sure i'll be a fan of the white intake manifold...sounds lame

    black ceramic coated header...alright it'll look ok i guess

    carbon fiber front end...
    fenders, bumper, and hood?
    are you going to paint them white?

    IMO, unpained carbon fiber front bumpers or fenders look rice like an unpainted body kit. unpainted hood is OK, especially on a white car. but you cant just leave the front end all carbon fiber. it would look like the car hasnt shaved in a few days, all scruffy. meh. all IMO.

    With a red intake pipe, and red oil cap, it should look nice with a few accents around the engine. Just dont go overboard

    the paint job itself looks mint,,but the colors-not so much,,i love the white cover,,but the red block is ugly,shoulda been black,primer,or aluminum..
    good work though

    How does paint screw up a car? It doesn't effect the performance of it at all.
