Hey everyone,

Looking for suggestions and if possible images of good color charge pipes, intake, coil cover that would go with my mean yellow solstice.

I'm looking at going with DDM or PAW (if PAW I can go yellow and will likely go that route, however I like the mandrel bent pipes from DDM, unfortunately they don't offer them in yellow)

Thanks all!

I think if I go DDM i'm going to go with "turbo silver", "graphite", or "black".
If I go PAW i'll go with yellow.

Anyone have any images of anything powdercoated "turbo silver" or "graphite" from DDMworks?

I would have suggested the DDM "polished" option, but I see that they are no longer being offered. Just "turbo silver" which I'm assuming is silver powdercoating.

I think that the polished or silver pipes look best. The yellow they can supply is highly unlikely to match your car paint colour and may clash. Besides, first you have to decide whether you are going after the carnival float effect with everything under the hood you can turn yellow done that way.

I tend to be a bit restrained on my car - I have polished alloy pipes and a red cam cover, both from DDM.

Get them raw and not painted and take them to a local shop to have them power coated in a color of your choice.

Where did you find the reservoir covers?? Those look GREAT!
They are from Performance Autowerks... hurry, they are having a sale!

Sweet! Going with turbo silver, I like the more subtle look.
That was my vibe here. Something that looks good but stealth.. almost OEM-ish as California has stringent smog checks every two years.
I just drop the plastic cover back on the engine and she looks pretty “stock” to the uninitiated
