What is that you may be asking, it's my intake wrapped with leftover exhaust wrap. I figured it wouldn't hurt to shield the cooler air entering from being heated up from the engine and transmission.
Also installed this:
BBK 66MM throttle body, got a heck of a deal on it brand new.
I also have been working on installing some relays (1 to power the gauge during engine cranking and 1 to power the gauge lights from the headlamp switch):
for my new autometer electrical gauges (they are shown in test mode because they aren't wired up completely yet):
Sanded the texture off the gauge pod and painted it flat black to make it look a little more OEM.
and a picture of my mess:
And yes I do like E4 Ford Red
