That looks great! It looks like a metalic red or burgandy but it just might be my screen settings. Nice job.

There she is all done with the TB mounted. The "tubes" are definitely wider than the stock manifold and Im hoping it will bring in more air. Is this true? They are very noticeably thicker.

That looks pretty nice. I don't know how your new unit compares to the stock mani, but FYI the "tube" things are called runners. Post a pic after you get it mounted up. It should look really good.

Oops. If they're bigger, you may have just painted an L36 manifold, which won't work on your car. Are we going to see this in the 'for sale' section soon?

Well ok the exterior runners are slightly wider than the OEM runners. I bought this at napa auto parts and its an aftermarket UIM so its just a bit different than the GM one but the layout is exactly the same because I checked and well they looked it up in the PC when they ordered it. The whole manifold looks beefier. I'll take a shot of both next to eachother so you can maybe see what Im talking about.

Its a little hard to tell but you can obviously see a difference in design in the runners. It isnt the paint that makes them look wider either because I compared the two before I painted it.

Hmm... That shouldn't make any difference. How close are the holes on the bottom?
