    Default My intake

    I recently purchased an Accel lower and some SLP runners.
    I picked them up from the powder coaters yesterday.

    Now I need to pick out some valve covers.



    1988 Corvette Coupe: Accel/SLP Intake. Exotic Muscle Headers. 2400 Stall Converter. Shift kit.

    They look really sharp! Are they more silver or more gray in color?

    Was the powder coater close by to you? Or did you have to drive a distance?

    They're more silver than they are gray. The powder coater is located in right in the city where I work. So it was easy drop off and pick up the parts.

    Looks good! How much increase does the setup expect? Should be substantial, since flow limitations on L98 are intake (intake manifold design, specifically), not exhaust...

    I'm not really for sure what to expect, although I think the largest gains will be in the 4500 to 5500 rpm range.

    As a side note, I believe the factory exhaust is very restrictive on an L98. There's a lot to be gained at that end.

    just curious, can you tell me what the powder coating service charged to coat those intake components?

    I believe about $170. For media blasting, masking off the gasket surfaces, plugging the holes, powder coat and clear coat.

    I thought it was a bargain.
