Not sure, but you can buy another brand of filter that will fit.


BTW, looks very good.

Did you use the painting process listed on this site, or did you do it another way?

Curious, because your's looks so good that I would like to use the process that you used.

blue looks better than red - but it's a little too light of a shade imo... good job though - thumbsup

Really? Looks nice.

How long did you have that red paint on there before you repainted to blue?

i think the red looks 1000 times better...plus you can still see a red tint to the blue and its the wrong shade thumbsdown

red looks better, but IMO painting all the engine plastics looks tacky. you should get the Injen engine and spark plug covers.

The blue looks a bit too purple and it lacks the same lustre. Did you put some kinda of clear coat on the red that you didnt yet on the blue?

Injen stopped making the RED/BLUE covers and only does them in either BLACK or POLISHED cry

Where did you get the red/blue wire covers and how do they install? How many times did you spray it on and did you just get the VVTL-I stickers?

I got the hose cover at kragen. its $5 for 8 ft. They have different sizes too! The hose come cut already so all you have to do is slide it on to the hose you want to cover. I think i sprayed 2 coats of paint on it, not sure. Oh...and i just used some silver paint to paint the vvtl-i after it was covered by the blue.
