Ebay intake and when the filter wears out, grab a k&n cone to replace it.

how you get chrome tops for your car you must not have a sunfire gt motor.



its an 05 ecotec motor same in cavaliers and sunfires. if by chrome tops you mean oil cover and coolant covers. they are just polished billet covers.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that they are custom work...don't you think sndsgood's engine bay looks slightly modified? Not something you are going to find in a catologue.

Nope...if you do anything, paint the outer part of your mirrors and sand your door handles smooth and then paint those (like my sig) You need some of the trim to stay black....otherwise your car will look like a refrigerator....Saving money for decent mods will be more worth it in the end...you will be better off not piddlydinking around with dumb little stuff....you have to look at the car as a whole, not just rip it apart and paint everything that you can unbolt...

like the picture of the car above now?

not like this car would be a show car lol
Re: What you got under the hood?

yes, my silver sedan, which is not a show car. Its my dd, and i've been taking care of things slowly....The body is completely stock minus a bit of paint on the bumper...its not hard to make these cars look good...but running around with a can of spray paint and spray painting everything you can find is not the way to do it...If you want to modify your car, sit down and have some plans of what you want to do with it, that way you aren't buying every piece of stick on garbage they sell at autozone and then wondering why your car looks worse than it did when you started...You have a great clean slate and you can build a great driver, but its not a race, mines been a work in progress for 5 years, and there are a lot of things I've done to it that i regret. It gets expensive to replace everything that you did the first time around because you've realized it looks horrible.
