It may be cheaper to find someone locally though, just check it out. They should coat your intake and tips for around $60 bucks. That black chrome requires a super gloss clear over it too so the powder alone would cost $20 plus shipping your parts both ways. Considering shipping that may work better for you, but at least I gave you an idea of what you want. There's several powder coating companies around Portland and the suburbs. You can PM me if you want to try to work something out.

An update 5 years later??? SURE!! lol.



The tube has been removed about 2 years now since when I sold the intake I stole the fittings from. About 3 months ago (Feb '12), I had the tube powder coated in black chrome from a local shop that hooked me up ($30). It's more of a Dark Shadow Gray in reality. Went with SiliconeIntakes.com fittings....3.5-3.0 and 3.25-3.0 in black. Took them 3+ months to get the fittings in stock. During that 3+ months, I updated to an AEM Dryflo filter as well. So excited to have my intake back to looking good and custom.

Enjoy the pics!

From the pic shown, it looks exact. Except I paid NO WHERE near what they're asking. lol. Try more like $30 shipped and $50 shipped for both Thunderbolt boxes I've bought. One from Hillbank(the place that bought all Rough/SLP's Thunderbolt leftovers) and the other from a forum member. The one from a forum member came with a K&N.
