Underhood pics
Nothing special by anymeans
I bought an Airraid quickfit airbox, frolled and welded a replacement torque tube and color matched them


Sounds great

But didnt really stand out so I went a different route and painted the valve cover while I was at it





Still need to buff and wax it and get good installed pictures

I actually cut the stencils out cereal box
The cardboard thick enough that it isn't flimsy but still leaves a pretty clean line
I had a few since they get loaded up with paint

And here's video
[yt]-IcVQaVqFSk[/yt]


I started with a mineral grey base, then went to ppg pure pink pearl

Then did some in dodge ps2 silver, pxr black and pretty much finished with mineral grey again
I touched up with all four colors so it doesn't really matter what colors you use
Just depends on how light or dark you want it
Finished with a spray maxx 2k clear which blows away any other clear in a can

Gotta thank schroedermp and usmc1188 for making me want to paint that stuff and there how to's to do it

I picked up a bullydog gt tuner used
I can't get it to work on her truck but worked fine on my buddies 06 5.9 so I have to give bullydog a call and see what they say
I'm figuring the truck needs an update reflash (obd port might be bad too) either way it goings to cost more money


Painted some headlights for her too

Awesome man! I like the paint, I might try something like that on my little powerstroke fuel filter cover.
