mine will be back on in a week or two.

roman that pulley is really a pita, i gave up and ripped of the front end. you guys should have machined it down where the bolts go on. only way to get a clean allen socket on there is to have on thats 2 inches long, which most people wont. it could easily be machined down inside, ill show you when i post pics.

I haven't yet made it down to Richmond to open and install my kit yet, Roman, but I was anticipating a black intake, not silver. Can I swap silver out for black? Alternatively, any problem having the silver intake powder coated, as I think the silver looks fugly.

In fact, my preference would be to have the kit look as it was advertised in every respect. Disappointing these changes were made without advising, much less consulting, the group buyers.
