Looks good. I'm thinking about doing mine with red accents. Did you order the Air Raid Box and Filter separately? I noticed you are using the stock intake tube. Can you tell any difference since adding it?

My mechanic ordered it for me, that's how the airaid comes, the Intakes do look better with aftermarket tubes but I think most of them have smaller tube sizes then what comes stock on our cars, but if I can find an after market tube that fits right, is larger diameter and looks good I will end up replacing the stock, mainly for appearance. I did feel an improvement and like the sound, also cut off mid smaller mufflers/resonators and had welded straight pipes to the rear mufflers. all in all really helped the engine get more air in and helped shoot it out. I wanted to order the Mopar but the price was just to high, and I love the look but a metal tube to supply Cold air in a hot engine just doesn't make sense to me.

I just had them Plasti-Dipped..the place I took it to had about 10 different carbon fiber designs..I got all six pieces done for 250...so just the radiator cover and the abs shouldn't cost much to get done..

Yo. I like what you did under the hood! In terms of the cai/cost of the mopar, I opted for the K&N Typhoon. It looks and sounds amazing and definitely adds a little kick in terms of acceleration. The amount of hp a cai adds is questionable anyway...how much are you really losing going with a metal tube? Imho, it's worth a horse our two to look this good (and at a reasonable price, too).

That's pretty sweet! This is what I've done so far...
Redline Tri Coat Pearl (PRY) spray paint & clear coat from AutomotiveTouchup.com
I created the V6 Pack decal myself. I designed it to mimic the 440 Six Pack air cleaner decal from 1970.

You used caliper paint for all parts? Did you use any clear coat on top? I want to try this with mine. Actually, want to plastidip but I thought the engine would be too hot and melt it. Any thoughts on that?

I used regular spray paint, no issues so far
