Default some underhood pics of the 00

I did a 6 hour detail job on the 00 yesterday, and I spent some time under the hood, but I was pretty unhappy with the pics I took of the car. The scenery is so blah around here with all the dead grass and what not.

So I figured I'd just show you what'* under the hood. I am yet to finish the wire loom. I also have a new polished fuel rail to install.

i really love your car. you should bring it to mississippi for scenery, we always have beautiful spots, but your car is so nice. they have a white one here for sale with the rims u used to have owned by a lil ole lady with 72000 original highway miles for 8200.00 i wished i could get, im torn though between the rims you have now and the rims you used to have, they are both beautiful, i just love the color and everything you have done to the car, i just spent an hour under my hood the other day and an hour under moms hood today. I cant stand a dirty engine bay, makes the whole car look junky

Your car is getting a lot of attention now! What kind of polish do you use on the chrome?

Looks great Andrew.


You sure have a long wire.





The ones going to your front bank.

It is polished to a high enough shine that it doesnt really need anything. Believe me that I haven't touched it since I put it on? I have only wiped the water spots off that It likes to collect. When I swap the fuel rails I'll give it a once over.

pretty ugly huh? I need to figure out a better method to secure that wire since I can't use the valve cover wire guide. The wire holding it is temporary.

Looks great Haro
MSD has some 'twist' retainers that would tame those wires. I got a few from Bill last time in Oregon, have to ask him where he got them....autozone?

Jegs or summit. But that'* only half the trick with no front retainer on the VC (same issue here).

I can show you what I did if you like. Been that way since last winter.
