    My friend and I were bored on Sunday, so I decided to completely clean my engine bay, and repaint my valve cover ultra-JDM gold. Sort of. Other than the ballin' VC, I've installed a new Ebay-something header, a test pipe, ES motor mount inserts, a Fidanza shifter and ES shifter bushings. I also threw in a K&N filter in the stock airbox. I just recently bought an ARC intake pipe from a guy on D-series.org.

    And now, eye candy. I guess.

    Oh yeah, we also sawzalled the ridiculous tip off my muffler, and it now looks much better and a whole lot less obvious.

    So, comming up are some fogs, new headlights and tires for the Heliums.

    Input?

    Thats the cleanest I have ever seen that engine bay. I miss that car, atleast it went to good hands. What are the future plans for the car?

    Well, a built D-series is in the works, and I have a set of Konig Heliums waiting for tires. Suspension is up next, likely with Omni coilovers, rear tie bar, LCAs and the rest of the GSR suspension I have laying around.

    very nice!

    the SSautochrome header isnt bad. even after winter abuse to mine, it still held a decent finish.

    Simple Green, Windex, brake cleaner, elbow grease and water. I used tire shine to clean the hoses and loom and tire wet to clean the plastic.
