I wouldn't bother with a coating. Once polished, it just doesn't take that
much work to get your shine back on. However, if you goof-up a clear coat,
it will always looked goofed-up, until you strip it and fix it.

BTDT with same manifold.

Is it better for me to leave the polished aluminum intake manifold without a
coating, or
clear laquer/metal flake finish for protection.

I do not have the time to get into anodizing or special coatings unless one
is available
off the shelf from FLAPS, etc.

Manifold is the RS2 with PORSCHE engraving.
