It sure is a gatorade bottle for my overflow. I had to remove the stock one. It was in the way of the upper intercooler pipe

My overflow cap melted when i blew my head gasket because it was pouring out hot oil with the antifreeze. That sucked. O well, 2.3L 6 bolt on the way.

question.... my injen intake has like water stains all over it its a chrome intake but with the damn water spots it ruins the clean look. Ive used windex and other crap to wipe it down but they dont come off can anyone tell me whats a good cleaner to use on chrome?? also like my exhaust is the same thing.

And also i see everyone with painted valve covers that look really good also everyone has colored hoses..what kind of paint are you guys using for all of this? or where are you getting customs hoses from?? i cleaned me engine the other day and it just looks kinda plain and everything is old so it just doesnt look that good.

the turtle wax in a bottle that removes rust also will take the water stains off easily. I also heard of that new product called like "invisiclear" or some crap that is supposed to removed those hard water stains from glass and chrome, they sell both at autozone.

I used Duplicolor High temp engine enamel no my valve color. I put like 7 layers on it, It turned out good and didn't fade from the heat. I got my colored hoses from autozone also, but they sell them in summit magazines, jegs, etc. fairly cheap. I got the radiator hose cover and clips for that at autozone too. It is like 40 or 50 for the kit.

Most of the time??? The only time it goes down is when I mod it or preventative repairs/maintenance. But you get some NT love none the less for starting out barometrically challenged too.

1G or 2G.

NO 420A's
You just dont want any 420a pics because our engine bays look better
