    I'm torn on that one. Polished is great but that gold..I hated it then it grew on me in about 5 seconds. I'm lazy so if it was my car, I'd keep the gold until I got tired of it

    Looks nice! How many hours do you have on the intake polishing so far. This is something I would like to do as well. What are you using to polish it?

    Slowly but surely. Cut the extrude honed runners for ease of polishing.

    Trying to do it in stages. Right now the runners are at 220 grit sand paper with a bench polish using emery.

    Since i am mildy OCD, i will be polishing in between every sanding, all the way up to 2000 grit.
