    Yeah they told me they stopped powdercoating since like a year ago. So I guess I have to do it now.

    Why do you have to powdercoat it? Preference? Aluminum should be fine uncoated.

    Yeah just preference. I like to have it as OEM looking as possible. Since the intake manifold is originally black, it looks off to me. Plus it'll be harder to spot if my hood gets popped.
