Go with black for a stealth look or a matte silver to tone down the contrast.

Re: (NorthernS40)

<TABLE WIDTH="90%" CELLSPACING=0 CELLPADDING=0 ALIGN=CENTER><TR><TD><i>Quote, originally posted by <b>NorthernS40</b> »</i></TD></TR><TR><TD CLASS="quote">nice looking fmic, that is a awesome price though, any pics of the work?</TD></TR></TABLE><p>Yeah, I posted a thread a couple days ago after I did it. Just to clarify, I received the core for free, so it throws it off, but it would probably be about $300-$400 for a FULL kit if I started selling it. I sent it to a shop to get welded for about $100, then I ordered an intercooler piping kit on ebay for $100. If I started selling the kit, I would be able to get a core for $100-$200, and get piping for less than $50 and I would get a discount if i sent it to my guy. I would like to see interest, and obviously, the more orders I get, It would be cheaper.<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=119348" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=119348</A>
