Damn it's hot:rant2:

After I get my cam back (tomorrow!) I want to look at some engine beautification (sp) -- After seeing a red powder coated maggie and some trick looking wiring I'm thinking...hmmm maybe a little mas under the skin?:alchi:


I've seen different engine shots all over the place and wasn't sure if there was a concentrated thread. Shame on me for not checking first:confused:

Please, engine busters please post pictures of your block:worship:

Thanks,
Chef

A thought. Check out the way denniscars routes his i/c hoses...would make your very clean engine compartment just that much nicer.

first upgrade to a maggie is ditch the straight hose to the air filter box and get a hump hose. it'll pull off, typically at the bottom where you don't see it, and it'll suck up all kinds of debris and small animals.

Remember, it only takes a tablespoon (or the metric equivalent for our Canadian friends) of dirt in the life of the engine to take an engine out.. it will start as increased oil consumption oh.. and covered under warranty?.. I think not.

Dennis' fun fact of the day...

It actually doesn't look like this anymore, but it's the most recent shot I have.

Just some little stuff like I sold that intake and got a Volant. I switch the Vette covers for a painted stock one (I go back and forth on this depending on who's going to see the car).

Well, I just put in an order to bling up my engine. And it will be marque appropriate as well. I'll also be experimenting with some dress up originally designed for C5s.

Jim, you are gonna show some pics when all of the "marque appropriate" peices get installed? Marque appropriate, too funny.
