Pulled it off today to do some "maintenance" :cool: and I was planning to powdercoat it one of these years.. might as well do it while I have it off, right? :)


Soooooo... What color?

I bought a bunch of anodized blue powder at first, but I'm not sure if I want to go with that color...

My TiAL wastegate is anodized blue, as well as my FMU (which will be going away actually....)
There's also a small piece of steel tubing which I just sprayed a small amount of blue on.. the finished product will be much brighter blue than that.

There's also the dark silver stuff that my track wheels and spare valve cover are done with:

Those are the two that I'm thinking about doing, but can't decide which...
Or do you think I should go with something completely different than those two?

Dark silver > blue anodized

I see too much blue anodizing in custom projects than anything.

gunmetal/dark silver is always classy in my book

i love a high gloss black PC'ing too
(forgot the name of the actual color, but its highly reflective)

Hmmm... well, I opened up my new container of the dark silver, and it's a much lighter color than the old stuff..

you can't really tell from those pics, but it's significantly lighter in color than the older stuff.. oh well.

BTW.. I'll be doing the intake manifold, valve cover, and intake piping with it.. (turbo piping one of these years as well.)

The brackets for throttle cable, wiring clips, and the EGR valve etc etc will all be in gloss black.
