7th Gen V6 Engine Bay Pics

I know the four banger's have a thread about this. I searched if the V6's had one and we don't. So, I thought I would start one. Let's see them engine bay's!! Here's mine:

God I hate you...and where's the AEM decal?



PS - did that Neuspeed strut bar do anything for you? Just curious...

^ LMAO!!!

The AEM decal start to get all funky looking so I just took it off. As for the Neuspeed bar, MEH I didn't really notice anything different so I probably could have just stayed with the stock bar and spent the money on something else...

i wish i could post my engine bay but it's SOOO dirty. lol. i need to give it a good wash once the weather gets better. damn winter!

any tips on washing the engine bay w/o damaging anything? usually i just spray with the high-pressure washer and dry it off with air.

^ I just wet the motor with the spray nozzle use a shammy to get all the dirt off and make sure it is dry. For the tough grime I would use a high pressure washer though...

Kai, we need to powder coat your strut bar ends, the blue doesn't work with the rest of the engine bay, pull them off a week or so before you come out and tell me what color to do them.....

I am thinking about the same thing~~~~

If I want to change the color of my intake cover and valve cover, do I need to get the gold coating off, or I can just recoat different color on top of it?

^^Manual 6speeds already have a tower bar so no strut really needed.

its more of an engine dress up part for me , i have tried both the greddy and the dc sports strut bar, both performed in the same way.

it is in the trunk. the smaller 51R interestate battery that was recommended, died from just my alarm when i didnt drive it for 5 days. so i decided to get an optima yellow top and relocate it in the trunk. helps out with the weight distribution too



i bought the box for it too, but it took up too much space so i left it exposed. its a sealed battery so it wont leak anyways.
