Default Gratuitous engine shots, and homemade intake.

The intake was a lot prettier before the insulation, but it did wonders. I took many shots, but here'* a few.

Yes, there is PVC under the insulation. You've never seen pics before because it is so ugly. The duct tape is from some recent surgury and I was out of aluminum tape. The engine is cleaner than it looks. I had just spent an hour on it.

Yeah, the transaction for the SC was a little shady, but I feel I got more than I paid for. After I cleaned out the aluminum shavings, that is.
