Default Added some color

Decided it was time to add some color to the engine bay. Thinking some red spark plug wires and a cooler looking oil cap are in order. Maybe even some of the tubing dress kits that summit sells.

I'm not looking to paint blower or valve covers, sounds like a pita to be honest.

I'm actually going to get the PRJ Performance race wires for it. They are red and will look very good. Right now I have mis-matching plugs and they look horrible! The ZZP wires are said to be no good and I've heard nothing but good about the PRJ, even though they are more expensive, they can resist the header heat.

The red plug wires will really dress up the engine bay. Painting the supercharger is a pain when it'* in the car. I've done several when I rebuild them, that'* easy and it looks really good when done. The valve covers are also a pain in the car. make sure you use a good paint that can handle gas. Or the paint will get messed up. Yes, stay away from the ZZP wires, I've heard nothing but bad things with them. Another nice way to dress up the engine is vacuum lines. I also picked up a breaded wire wrap kit to cover the radiator hoses. That really dresses it up.

Ya I would pick up the radiator hose kit along with these wires but unforantley the PRJ wires are going to set me back for a long time lol. However I think the extra color going over supercharger will help balance my color scheme. Even with an exposed non painted blower I think the wires will really make it look proffesional over standard dull wires.

I say if you are going to add color to the engine bay, try to color match the rest of the car. IMO, nothing looks better.
