Sweet!  You can show me chrome in an engine compartment all day and  
I'll want to upchuck (I can't stand it when people polish the head or  
intake manifold on a 20v, blech- to each his own, I guess), but a nice  
curvy cast aluminum manifold...rowr. :-P

Oh.  I make an exception for that Alfa that Top Gear reviewed a few  
years ago- the one that depreciated like a rock but had a gorgeous  
engine.  Those chrome, slightly-iridescent intake runners were the  
bee's knees.
