looks much better man. i like off the wall stuff, but you were right, on yours the yellow didn't really fit right. looks much better now. still looks like you've done your own work too, taken care of it and put a lil love into her.

i like the intake tube being black too. looks good like that.. only other thing that i could see you gettin away with changin colors without it taking away from the look would be the rear crossbar being painted the same as the IM. think the forward crossbar would take away from the IM and other stuff.

you should paint the rear of the headlight encasements gloss black too.

I knew someone was gonna notice that. Its because I didn't know throttle bodies are different on Legends. I installed the tb and the cruise cable didn't fit right. I couldn't figure out what was wrong, so I took it off and then figured it out.

Now I'm just going to bore out my old tb and put it on instead off messing with all those springs and shit.

Wait what? Uh oh. I was told the type I and type II TB's were the same. My intake manifold didn't come with a TB. Will the type I TB not fit or is it just the cable connections different?

It fits, its just the cruise cable connector (dont know what its called exactly), its a bit bigger. Dont know which throttle bodies are different and dont remember if my old one is from a Type II or my old type I.
