I have a GT40 tubular intake, and I've been thinking about getting it powder coated.
Are there any negatives to this at all? and any guestimates on cost? I'm just curious.
Also, the intake is kinda dirty on the inside, is there a way I can clean it out? Or can I take it somewhere to make it look like new?

Well its shameless promotion time.....

i own a powdercoat & metal polishing business in central florida

the are no negatives with regard to powdercoating you intake

only advatages gt 40 intake really look good when they are done right

you can pick aa rainbow of colors to match the car or whatever your imagination can come up with....

also you can always polish those .....or a combo of both powder & polish....

Price do vary but the average powdercoating on that intake is approx.

$225.00 + shipping

additional charges can be incured for excessive prep sandblasting, degreasing

with regard to polishing .....price is $400.00

if you need any other info feel free to contact me via [email protected]

Thanks .....Reggie

with regard to cleaning spray it good with engine cleaner or brake cleaner.....and soak in hot water with dawn dishwashing liquid...repeat as required...

Sounds like a deal to me. Should you (or anyone else) want to do business with him, please do it privately like he asked.

Reg, why not put that info on your profile page so others would know?

Might have some work for you myself eventually...

You can buy the powder coating kit from Sear's or Summit, etc too. The kit is about 150-200 bucks and the price of the powder varies. If you have an over to back it in you can make stuff look pretty good for cheap. You do need to prep the paterials well though (i.e. sandblast or something to get it equally clean).

That should be "have an oven to bake it in". I never really learned how to type.

I don't know... I think all the stuff I've done with my Sear's kit has turned out pretty nice. Just my opinion though.

i'm sure you have turned out some nice things with you sears kit

what I have seen lately is the diy kits being offered is making everyone think they can powdercoat.


the only thing i see is the instructions included with are leaving out many of the important steps to ensure quality and longevity

but then i know some professionals that do not go the extra mile



in closing to mnjahead sooner or later you will run into one those problems....when that does occur please do not hesitate to contact for advice or a solution

I know in the early days i had to do things the hard and expensive way

i believe i have read some where that powder coatin also helps keep the air cool because it acts as an insulator like heat tape but i am not positive, i am sure its not a huge difference but swear i read that at onetime, but lets face it powder coating done right looks straight bad ass!
