I saw who you ordered the intercooler manifold from. Did they powder coat it and was there options? It did not appear to be an option when ordering. Speed industries will do it for a charge.
You can send them a message about powder coating. They do charge a fee as well. Just let them know and they will send you a customized invoice.

Nice. This is the first time i've seen someone use a full alcantara option on a steering wheel for the A90.
Yeah. I'm trying to not use so much carbon fiber in the interior. I also love the feel and grippiness of a full Alcantara steering wheel. Only other thing I might swap out for carbon fiber are the silver seat inserts.

My wife finished modding the MST intake box to properly fit next to the Verus AOS. The strut braces are off getting powder coated and they should be done by this week or next. The new engine and ECU covers should be in tomorrow as well. I will be installing the steering wheel either this weekend or early next week. It depends on when the paddle shifters get here.

With the verus engineering oil filler cover, can you still remove the engine cover properly? I.. cannot. I'm trying to figure out what my next move is there.

I had the same issue. I resorted to shaving the cover a little bit. I'm hoping my new cover won't have the same issue.

It was an easy install. Both the AOS and auto drain system. Right now it's not doing much until I start increasing the power of the car. It's not really something you need unless your tracking the vehicle or increasing boost/performance. It does fill out the engine bay quite nicely too.

I had a AOS on my old car 17 STI. I tracked it a few times and is usually a weekend car. The Supra for me Is a weekend car with some track days hopefully added in. Thanks for the info👍

Well... I'm rolling the dice with a Spectre filter. I heard they were crap a long time ago before being acquired by K&N. If anyone can find a better filter in the same color theme I'm all ears. Edelbrock makes one, but it's the same filter with their logo and an added gimmick. K&N also has one with their logo on it for the same price point.

K&N, Spectre, and AEM are all the same company and most of the materials come from China. It just depends on where they are put together that determines the price point.

I was looking at premium air filters like BMC, but can't find any in a black/silver combo. Please help!

Well at most if the metal cap flies into the turbo and destroys the turbine, it will just be an excuse to get it rebuilt into a Pure 850 sooner rather than later.... plus towing fees.
