Question Engine bay dress up?

I am really anal about keeping my engine bay looking spotless and in top notch shape. Although it is clean, I want to do some dress up. Where can I get billet, or annodized blue aluminum parts? I want boost tubes, caps, covers, etc.

There is a replacement tube for the cold side of the intercooler that is aluminum and not plastic. Looks better IMO, and lasts longer.

Re: Engine bay dress up?

Holy crap do you armor all your engine bay? Theres only one main option when it comes to dress up. Make your own paint scheme and begin

No sir, just wash it after everytime offroading or driving in the rain. And then use a foaming engine degreaser.

Re: Engine bay dress up?

Powder coat the boost tubes and do the replacement Ford intake tube. You can get polished billet oil and fuel res covers....They make silicone boots for the tubes but I'm not sure if they hold up well.....

To be honest, it is just what ever is cheapest at the time I decide to go to the parts store. I've worked in shops and realized it all works the same more or less.

Thanks, isn't there a thread where a guy sanded and polished his boost tubes?
