price was under 500 if i remember correctly. You can use the stock DV's no problem but the Forge DV's will be a better choice in the long run IMO, especially w/ a higher psi tune.

thermalcoating them would be a good idea but possibly a waste of $$....air isnt going to spend much time in there plus its about to be heated by the turbo's anyway, just not sure the benefit would be worth the cost if there is a big difference in $$ between thermal powdercoat vs regular powdercoat.

looks nice, thanks for the second pic. is that black gloss or semi gloss??

btw, to answer another members question, thermal coating is not really necessary. note that i got that info from a very very reliable source.
hey, but if it is not that more expensive and u r painting the cai anyway, then go for it - it will not hurt.

cheers
