Intake probably gets a lot hotter. Iím debating painting things when I get around to freshening up the motor...but itís a lot of work for something thatís going to get very dirty haha
Sure looks good though when itís clean

My cleaned / polished / painted parts have been holding up well.

Polished aluminum gets to look really crappy if it gets plenty of road salt spray. Wouldn't work here.
I used metallic silver + clearcoat on both of my intakes (first on the kegger, now airgap), held up great as well. It also makes cleaning way easier due to the clearcoat
Fuel rails stay relatively cool due to fuel flow, intake and most other engine parts indeed are hotter.

What kind of clear did you use? I use rustoleum satin on my mr2 and the heat ended up making it haze within weeks. I was thinking maybe there is an engine clear people use.

Same here; cars here dissolve like those dissolvable C-Vitamin tablets you drop in a glass of water.

I really wish they would come up with a better solution to cope with ice on the roads during the winter.

I received my Viair 88P 12 volt compressor via UPS yesterday. It looks like a pretty nice piece.




I did a quick test with it and it will take a 32" tire from flat to 35 psi in under 5 minutes no problem. It runs relatively quiet and fairly cool. It will push 1.47 cfm @ 0 psi and 1.25 cfm @ 30 psi maxing out @ .35cfm @120 psi.
It came with 10' of hose, 16' of cable and a case. Seems like a fair value for $70 shipped.

Looks solid. I bet if you changed the cable to a heavier gauge it would work even better!

Since it has 26' of reach from the battery clamps to the end of the hose, I could shorten the cable some and go to 12 gauge cable instead of the speaker wire that is on it now.

After lots of scrubbing and a few rounds with the wire brush on the drill for the caked on gasket, I finally got my plenum plate cleaned up. It took some work, but really I think less than 2 hours total to get it to this spot. There's still one little oil spot in one of the corners, which I may or may not scrub off depending on how much it bugs me.

Next up will be the valve covers.

Oh wow, I thought mine was bad! Mine was pretty well baked, but not nearly that bad!

Thanks.
