IPD finally installed

Finally got around to installing my IPD plenum with its pipe and the 74mm throttle body today. Installation was straight forward but with my ocd I cleaned the engine after I took all the original stuff off that was not going back on which took me the better part of the day.

I had the inside the plenum grinded smooth as I didn't like the rough casting finish it comes with. (I know there might be some mixed opinions on that )I also had the outside of the plenum ceramic coated in red to compliment everything else.

Throttle response seems to be better and the car seems to rev up quicker, might be in my head but I am happy with the outcome. I didn't do a before dyno run but am going to do a dyno run once I fit my headers and UD pulley.

A big thanks Steve (STEVE0x) for selling and shipping me the IPD as well as a few other parts, top notch guy!

Didn't take too many pics but here are some.

Sweet! Looks better than new. I think ipd may have experimented with smooth vs rough vs coated interior so who know what the latest one was. After the UDP you will feel a little kick in the pants and I bet after the ipd as well. .
