should I leave the e-46 stamp on?


Recommended Posts

I'm pulling my intakes off real soon so I can smooth them out before buffing them to a high luster like the valve cover and water inlet on my L-24,

my question is of basic preference, should I leave the E-46 and the round mfg stamp on the manifolds or sand them off like on the ballance tube, before I take the buffer to it.

I'd really like your true z-pinion on this 1) - authentic looking w/ E-46 stamp) or

2) - smooth polished intake w/ no incriminating marks)

let me know..... don't worry, I can take it.

As you can see in the pic. I shaved all unneeded rises and lifts off of the balance tube, then smoothed it out, i'll probably polish it later.

Thanks Alfadog, but at the time there were quite a few on line

And you were thinking same as me, toss the mfg stamp and leave the p/n. and maybe use a little bit of my (intense Blue pearl) on the lettering to make it stand out? Man, I LOVE BLUE AND CHROME/POLISHED ALUMINUM! :love:

Thanks a lot. Dave in WA.


I'm pulling it today, I'll put pics on later on this evening.
