I bought a C&L cold air intake a few months ago, and this past weekend, my neighbor powdercoated it for me in 80% gloss black. Because the tube has a rough finish to it, it's not uber smooth like you'd see on a standard aluminum pipe (this piece is cast, and is relatively thick). I also had him brush off the powder from the C&L logo to make it stand out a little bit more.

Let me know what you think. These are cell phone pictures, unfortunately, so if anyone wants a higher res picture, let me know.

Looks good. When are you switching the TB?

PS... Jess was wondering when the 4 of us can go out for drinks now that she's legal.[/b]
I might do the TB, but I'd rather spend that $300 on headers.

We'll have to talk about getting together...we're busy every weekend until the middle or end of June, and I'm not going to make the Mass meet, so we'll have to come up with a time. You guys are more than welcome to come to Jersey, or we could come out to Hershey...

There's definitely a sound difference. Besides that, the car, with the tuning is completely different. Throttle response at tip in is insanely better, and the car pulls hard across the RPM range in all gears.
