FINALLY installed my intake and strut bar. But when I went out to the farm, I forgot the breather tube from the kit in my basement. I'll take a pic of the rig we came up with to get home with and the complete install tomorrow. Its definitely a backyard job that could only be pulled off at a farm full of old vehicles. It's a good thing its a universal fit, apparently (since we got the hose we needed off a small block V8).

Okay, now that I have more than a few minutes, yes, the engine bay is horribly dirty. I've yet to replace most of my cleaning products, and don't want to detail again until I have everything. The intake makes a nice grumble at mid-high range. I'm not sure if I want to change the muffler or not now. I like the way it sounds. Might spruce up the interior next. I'm thinking Razo RA92 shift knob, some black fabric in the door inserts, and Momo pedal covers. Either that or replace the centre console storage with a toaster.

whats the engine look like with that ugly cover off? If its not too bad, maybe take that off and paint or polish your valve cover...


had a blown ecotec swapped 2000 cavy, now just an 02 Grand Am, and a 74 BMW 2002...

you call that dirty? @!#$. I wonder what mine would be. . . I work on a dirt road, have no access to pressure washers, or anything of that sort. have to go to car wash that will allow that crap, which, is none that I know of here in E town.

I'm not a fan of the engine without the cover. As much as I don't like engine covers, all you get is bare spark plug connectors and the breather hose.I'm going to do some paint work on the engine cover, though. I'm thinking of doing the "VVT-i 16 Valve" in red to match the intake, or doing all but that in the same colour. There are a few crazy custom engine covers on 9GCs out there, but I don't have the patience, skill or money to get a custom air brushed design.

Maybe I'm picky, or maybe I'm used to the anal retentive folks over at 9thgencorolla.com, but my engine bay looks like hell. I want one that looks like some of these after pictures:

I know someone that is starting a water transfer (dipping) company and you can do crazy custom films on anything website for film preview (www.liquidprintone.com)

That is pretty cool. Even if its fake, I wouldn't mind getting some of my engine bay stuff done like that (fuse box cover, engine cover). Is he local? Any idea what he's charging. This i a very attractive option to get a LOT of stuff looking the way I want it.

Yes, I bought it on a recommendation, and it actually works as advertised. Much better than the Simple Green glass cleaner.

I don't only use it for glass though. I've used it on plastic and even sprayed it onto a cloth before and cleaned my dash off.
