    And now, I give you the visual centerpiece of this engine bay. You won’t see another intake like this. Special order MMR C head sheetmetal manifold. Took three tries to get the Powdercoat right since aluminum likes to outgas but man, it turned out beautifully. Don’t ask what this cost lol IMG_7413.JPG IMG_7412.JPG IMG_7414.JPG IMG_7415.JPG

    Anndddd the rest of the bronze engine bay/cold side parts. Much like the DSG car I went with a contrasting color/texture for the valve covers to give the engine bay some dimension. I should have those back in a couple days IMG_7416.JPG

    Yes. But when the soundtrack "is there it's there" (Arnold - Pumping Iron)... Nice to have both. You can turn the stereo off if you want to listen to the Bassani.

    Another cool build - thanks for the photos and updates OP!

    After much deliberation I decided I’m going to eliminate all badges, emblems and decals to streamline the car and make for an ultra clean finished product. Had the body shop weld the fenders and trunk. This will allow the body kit and wheels to be the stars of the show. IMG_7425.JPG IMG_7426.JPG

    All the stainless hotside is freshly 2000 degree ceramic coated. I’ll likely wrap the down pipe and any other exposed piping in the engine bay with titanium colored wrap to keep with the color scheme IMG_7428.JPG IMG_7429.JPG

    Billet MMR fuel rails came in. I’ll have to run these down to powdercoat. The black won’t work correctly with my theme IMG_7436.JPG

    Thanks to @1fast4valve today offers an Interior update. I’ll refresh your memory and remind you that I’m doing a change to black interior as far as carpet, seats and accents go. Had the door panels, shift and e brake boots done in black suede with black stitching to tie in the black suede Corbeau LG1’s. Should come together nicely when installed. Clean and streamlined is the theme for this build inside and out IMG_7284.JPG IMG_7455.JPG IMG_7456.JPG IMG_7460.JPG IMG_7461.JPG
