It's good that you have coils. I can't wait till you kill your wheel gap. :lol:

Engine looks good. I think you should sharpie the letters on the fuel injector cover silver like this:

ok so the polished magnum intake manifold was installed today, i need to reroute the pcv hose later on this week, and also route the throttle cables under the manifold

also i plan on picking up a different silver marker, the one i bought didnt work out so well, so ill look into finding a different one, other than that the bay needs a wash and im on the hunt for a raditaor gap cover and a radiator hardpipe, or maybe ill go with a colored replacement one, im still unsure

and i need a mag intake bellows tube and i need to install my aem bypass valve, other than that i think im done

I think, and don't assume I'm being an ass, but I feel like your injector cover could be cleaned up quite a bit.

Looking good! I like the color scheme you have going on there.

As far as the Sharpie goes, are you using regular markers or the Sharpie paint pens?

Looks nice!

Did you polish the insides of the runners and the two outer sides,? or did you just do the face of the runners?
