That is beautiful! I wonder how far off it is from the color I'm going with (eastwood #10163 Gold)

Cant wait to see that stuff installed in your engine bay!

^ I was thinking of using this for MY letters.. they have ones for the 8v and 16v motors, but seems expensive at 40 bux or so.

in reality it does not look that yellow/orangish and it looks nicer

and yeah I was thinking of those letters too, but man, $40/change it a lot to me too

but I think that it would look really great with black letters and lines and plugs

or at least polished

thanks!

Roman my hat to you ,you did a beautiful job on that camshaft housing & intake, but I really don't think you should polish by leaving it as it is & like you said using black line & plugs wire it will really stand out.

Just a quick polish every couple months.
Of it's a good polish job, it does not dull very quickly.
With a clean engine bay, it's easy to spot leaks and makes for clean hands when doing work.

While waiting for valves

Cleaned up the head and put a coat of black Hammerite on the valve cover.
I did polish up the intake but left the casting texture and applied 2 coats of clear over all bare aluminum. It will be interesting to see if cracks as it expands.
BTW The body is crystal green L M6Y but I'm thinking of repainting it black.

Thats sweet Soon it will be time to do mine and I have no clue as to what is going to be what color.

Im thinking my car will be black. The engine will be a combination of black, red, and maybe grey. Its all about what to paint what color.

How long does engine enamal paint usually last? Im wondering if I should even paint my engine. I picture an engine with chipping/ flaking/ missing paint everywhere.

idesign635's is gorgeous!

I'm kinda partial to the basic polish myself.

spendy! throttle body per intake, carbon plenum.. full tube chassis... drool..

I was wondering about "thermal" benifits of intake coatings, like polished underside "reflective" and bbq black topside, supposed to help disipate heat, rather than insulate, like paint or powdercoat might do... maybe add an audi or volvo injector cooler fan, or little more advanced, head to intake spacers; sort of replacing the bottom section of intake mainfold with high temp composits at the head where the injectors fit in, then having those extend up as short tubes, joined further up with high temp rubber boots to regular plenum/runners, kinda like how the early 928's intake tubes are joined to the plenum..

No, I certainly didn't. Wish I was that capable. That engine was the collaboration of C.E.P. and P.D. or Custom Engineered Performance and Peformance Developments.
Been a bit of a long story, as it seems many of these projects turn out to become, but hopefully not too long before final tune on the engine dyno.

Engine spec is here. Some changes have been made and it will be Dry Sumped. The modified Wet sump is on it's way to me down here to use on my interim car.
