Thinking of doing the manifold alum color, and the IC pipes red, with the blue riffraff boots.
Probably it for now till I get a spare 7.3 to start building.
Might go old school with dark ford blue motor, chrome valve covers lol

ive gone through 3 different phases, this was right after i got the truck, 4 years ago



this was in june, i decided to strip the paint and polish the spyder and ic pipes,


and this was done a few weeks ago when i did my uppies and rebuilt the turbo, the turbo got some paint as well








plans are for the valve covers to eventually be purple, and get black IC boots, and the spyder to get a more thorough polish, and get an engine cover like the one in the link and paint it purple

How did you polish the IC pipes? They look good.

After the new engine. Sadly, not so shiny now, 3 years later.
