Ypu, thats Ford Blue. I did it to **** off the Ford guys Actually, I thought it looked better than the Pontiac Blue, which is lighter. The intake was painted with a metal speck blue.

And yes, that front header was made by yours truely. Turned out pretty good for my first attempt. My next project for it is a set of long tube headers

I can personally say that the pics do no justice to how good it looks in the vehicle in person
