I think the red is worth about a 10th at the track. Lol

Nice. I likes the 5.0 emblem on the air box +1. I'm in the process of smoothing my coil covers PITA but it'll look good when I'm done.

Yeah the stock intake manifold cover had the emblem and I thought why let it go to waste? Lol it was a b!+[# to get that emblem off without damaging it.

Touching up the boss intake with some red would look good too. I'm sure you've been thinking about it.

Yes, just not sure how to go about it and I'm thinking I probably should remove the intake to paint it.

What type of paint did you use? Is it a high temp paint?

I used krylon(not a big fan) fusion paint. I prefer duplicolor but I couldn't find any at the time.

I lightly sanded 1000 grit, used tape and playdough for masking, cleaned, tack clothed, adhesion promoter, primer, about 4 thin coats of Duplicolor high temp paint on mine.

Yes, Duplicolor makes a high temp paint, I bought mine at O'rielley auto parts. Oh yeah, I also put some clear high temp over it too. I used the Play Dough to mask off around the intricate Boss 302 wording. After I pulled off the masking I had a few small touch ups which I did by spraying some paint into a container and using a miniature brush.

Awesome I learned something new on the forum today. Thanks for posting the play dough trick.
