ATS Ported Compressor Housings - Colors?

We've been tossing the idea around of starting to color coat the ported compressor housings, and I figured there's no better way of finding out how good (or bad) of an idea that is than asking Powerstroke owners what you'd like to have on your own trucks.

Please answer the poll & let us know if you had to choose one of the listed options, what your preference would be.

Thanks for your time!

Before I answer, how much extra is the cost? Will it be powder coated?

How about making them available so they're not on backorder for 2 months?

Sorry guys, I was a bit slow in getting the poll posted up - there would be no additional charge associated with this.

Maintain - when you're right, you're right & I'm terribly sorry about the wait. We're ready to start them shipping again though, which is what prompted this discussion.

Gotcha.

I don't know if black is a good option. I think a polished chrome or something to make it look like this would be awesome though...



Thats the best looking turbo I've ever had under my hood.

For right now at least, polished isn't on the table - just trying to get a feel for what people would prefer of the 3 options presented

I voted black since we can't pic polished. Purple will never go with anything on my truck. What about powder coat chrome?

You need to call Outlaw diesel then.



I voted black. Nothing need to "pop" on a real truck. Save the "pop" for trailer queens. Uncolored works well as it is.
