how would it look better with a cold air intake? you cannot even see it unless you remove the center panel.

The cold air intake is .....

I have the Injen Cold Air intake... the chrome down pipes look great. Also the red fittings(Vacuum lines and clamps fit with the look of my engine compartment.

but you cannot see the intake nor the downpipes unless you are either under the car(downpipes) or unless you took off the center panel(intake). or do you mean you have a chromed Y pipe. which does not seem right, because they are rubber. and the downpipes, AKA test pipes do not come in chrome because they get so hot the chrome would just flake off anyways?? you lost me man.

the pipes that come down from the throttle bodies are chrome.... they arent flaking and dont receive direct heat so it shouldnt be a problem..... sorry you got lost man

i go strictly for power and performance mods. shiney shit does not make you go fast so i do not even bother. i got a set of sheep dog BOV's recently, sweet sound, good spool up time. gotta love turbos. but i had an NA at one time too, nice car for crusing but it does not have that throw you back in your seat power that a TT does.

Im going that route next...

I've got myself convinced to do an engine swap within a year.... Then I'll have a car that handles better than a TT with additional power..... :eek:

don't you ever get onto TT.net? it is much cheaper and easier to just buy a twinturbo than tring to convert one. and what makes you think a 2+2 will handle better than a smaller twinturbo with hicas?:rolleyes:

If youve read

All the smart drivers have their hicass disconnected... and also Steve Millen the most succesfull Nissan 300zx driver used a 2+2 that was converted to TT ... reason the car has a longer wheelbase... Thus it handles better It was lighter than the TT also... :) Its not as expensive as it sounds(well on TT.net it is) but I can buy a JSPEC TT for around 1500.00 with turbos slap the baby in and there ya have it.... and besides that I have a sweeet looking car that has been fun to work on... I've learned alot about the car along the way... I wouldnt get rid of her for less than $20,000, with the suspension, bodykit, brakes, disks, wheels, interior job, & sound system I have.

i really like the hicas, and i know plenty of people who feel the same way. the only people who buy the hicas kit are people who have problems with it and don't want to pay out the nose to get it fixed. and the 2+2 is a little heavier than the 2 seater twinturbo. a longer wheelbase only means more stability at high speeds, not through tight turns. doing a TT conversion is a lot more involved than just dropping an engine in, in addition to the engine you will also need the tranny,EGI harness,intercoolers and all the piping, fuel pump, oil cooler,radiator, ECU, front bumper,clutch, vac. assist stuff for the clutch,exhaust system, clutch pedal,variety of sensors and actuators and the main engine room harness. along with a lot of gringing and frame work to get everything to fit. so if that sounds simple and cheap, i want what you're smoking please. so good luck!:rolleyes:
