    Painting K&N SRI Intake?

    Not really a fan of the Chrome, what could I use to paint/change the color of the intake pipe?

    putting glossifier on it would make it look better and clean easier.

    Would I need to sand it or anything pre-paint?

    Nope
    (You Should of asked if I sanded my hood prepaint that would of bee funny) lol
    It's basically the same. I would just keep the 90degree connecting tube connected to the intake. No need to get the plasti dip under inside that 90deg elbow.

    Then once it's dried just peel it off the elbow. And your good.

    From the Plasti-Dip web-site:
    Plasti Dip remains flexible and stretchy over time, and will not crack or become brittle in extreme weather conditions. It has been tested and proven in temperatures from -30F to 200F.
    It should probably be fine, but I'd be careful about it if I were you. Maybe Plasti-Dip a baking dish and see how much oven heat it takes before it melts/burns. But thats probably not the safest thing to do, so I'll say do it at your own risk.

    This would probably be a good idea, since I am sure that engine bay gets hotter than 200 degrees

    That's what I was worried about. Wasn't sure how hot the intake itself would get or how hot the radiating heat would be, id rather be safe, I wonder if brake caliper paint would work. Never really looked into buying that.
