I installed my chrome intake manifold today. Thanks fwdtamiya,Caldera and gunwoo for the tips. It wasn't much fun, took about 3 1/2 hours, but the end result is well worth it!! Let me know what you think!
My valve cover has been on for about 6 months and it hasn't tarnished at all. The intake manifold should be the same.What are the heat characteristics of chrome?
Thanks! I bought both my valve cover ($150) and intake manifold ($295) already chromed. The 3 1/2 hours included removing the old manifold and installing the new one.Looks good!!! I looked into getting mine powdercoated chrome when I got the valve cover done, that way I wouldn't have to worry about keeping it polished up.
What did the polish job cost you? Also was that 3 1/2 to take the old one off and the new one on or just putting the new one on?
