ya I painted it black. if I just leave it the color of the rocker guard it looks basically like stock color, but its a dust magnet and a little rough. gotta lightly sand with like 800 grit and then paint. I did use a pretty dark semi gloss black though. but it doesn't look as glossy in person. flash adds gloss. lol

only thing I don't like is the gauges basically touch the dash. I could have moved the pod a little higher or not built it up as high where the gauges sit. I forgot to use my biggest gauge to check, I used one of glowshift gauges, which fit perfectly. also that pod isn't the best looking, but its basically the only one I could find that would work for how I wanted to do it. there is a little to much blank space between the gauges for my liking. but its still looks ALOT better than what I had built last time. if you wanna try this snail, just let me know and ill let u know how I did it.

Are the new ZZP coils in stock again? They still owe me my replacement as I purchased them last year before the recall...I'm still running my stocks for now.

Gonna finish up my meth setup and then take some pics, trunk mount with 2.25 devils own tank, stainless braided line till the failsafe gauge flow sensor and normal hose , slipped into an6 braided nylon hose to the nozzel. Id go braided stainless all the way but i can only use a snow holder on the tb spaces plate i modified to actually work properly. So the last few inches is the nylon hose

Turbo setup 99% complete. Used braided nylon lines for all the boost lines. Running a meth failsafe so i got a few lines in there. Had to do some mods, the pcv fitting on the manifold keeps the wastegate from fitting so that has to be removed and the port tapped and a 90 degree 1/8 npt to 3/8 barb fitting installed. Oddly enough i had one so that saved me a few bucks. Just need 3 more banjo fittings for a few of my lines to fit the way i want



Braided nylon lines for all the vac lines , looks mint
