I'm sure there are places local to you that could chrome plate your VC for you. Won't be cheap, but look for an industrial type place that does a high volume, they'll be cheaper. My Father-in-law had a bunch of parts done for his MG for like $600 I think at a local industrial place and he originally got a qoute for a auto oriented plating place for $3000. So shop around. You can always painstakingly polish yours, there's plenty of info on the net on how to do that. AFAIK, there isn't anyone that makes a chorme plated VC for the GA16DE, nor the SR20DE for that matter. I'd bet you can have it done fairly reasonably, maybe like $60, but that's a barely educated guess, and what you and I deem reasonable might differ. I'd just paint it. Polish and mask off the lettering to leave it metal or paint the lettering a different color than the rest, that adds a really nice touch. Maybe do the ECCS lettering that's on your intake, that looks nice, despite that ECCS is nothing to brag about.
