Default Which color looks better?

These are procharger intercoolers. I am looking to dress up the motor but don't want too dressy. I will also paint the carb boxes. I have twins, which color do you think would look the best?

The engine is all black. I am also thinking about redoing the lines to braided.

Hey Paul,

I'm just bored, need something to do. If I started powdercoating things where would it end? Rails, exhaust manifolds, windscreen, etc, etc. I would end up taking everything off and having it done!!

What are you doing for the superbowl? We might be going to Chili's in Ramsey, close to Chris's house. $20.00 all you can eat!! Plus Michelle's discount on booze!! I'll give you a shout on the 2 way tomarrow.

I keep my intercooler polished, I like shiney stuff. If you're really bored you might want to unload that shelf before it dump all the chit on the end!!

Here's my .02, If the motor is all black, go with the black or polished. If the intercooler is the only red piece on the motor, in my opinion it makes it look like a cheesy bolt-on and something that was arbitrarily added. Now if there are other things like the manifolds or block and or intake that are red, then it looks more coordinated and the red would look great. Nothing worse than having a killer motor and having it not look like it was put together at the same time, aka multi-color overkill
