Like the intake manifold. Never seen it done like that before.

Stupid question, how much of that wire look did it take to cover you plug wires?

Did the strut bar come factory on your car? Or did you add it? If so, where did you mount the bar to the firewall at?

The upper is a Polished RGR Stage 3 Intake. The wires are Red MSD 8.5 with Red plastic covers to prevent arching. The Strut Tower Brace is a Steeda that has been powdercoated with the valve covers to match my car. No V6 comes from the factory with a STB!!!!

Nice engine compartments guys! On strut tower braces at firewall, drill holes in fire wall, use self treading bolts, like giant sheet metal screws, that is what I did on my GT anyhow. On the 94-96 or maybe even 97 V6s, they were already drilled and tapped for the strut tower braces, which made the install really easy.

Erick, what type of paint did you use on your upper intake lettering?

It has to be some kind of special engine or other high temp paint or it won't last long. Ordinary paint won't hold up to high temps on an engine.
Yes, I know, it could be a lot cleaner, but it looks sort of impressive, right, lol.

So what sort of cleaners do you use under there Erick? That thing really does look clean enough to eat off of man! Not that mine is that dirty, but could be a lot better.

Hmm lets see, i got it steam cleaned a while back, that took care of a lot of crap that was there.

mothers is a really good product and meguirs as well. Gotta just get in the crappy spots as well, cleaning up the hosing really helps

I like to use the rubber protectants under the hood, and of course chrome polish for certain pieces. Putting the rubber protectant on the radiator shroud really makes it stand out, you should try it Rick
