Default New Intake for Black Magic

Well since Black Magic is the COTM, I felt she deserved an upgrade... and some engine paint to pretty her up.

I let my mechanic design a custom FWI.... she really sounds different and I can feel a bit more power in the low end, but a lot more once she gets above 70kph.

Here'* the pix... enjoy







I know the engine bay needs a major cleaning, and I'm not done detailing the engine yet.
Suggestions/ideas are welcome
