it has the 15x8, car in background is a different ride.  I am having them redone too.  62xxx miles, just had it pulled and sent over to the performance shop. 

can someone post pictures of the items i'm missing: choke shield, secondary choke pull off and bracket?  Other things to work on is gremlin in the power door locks and replacing scratched passenger window, bought some new felt pads/guides.

The egr baffle should be all cad plated those look like some one painted them, just to let you know. I just did my intake like you did, one day it will go back on. The blue egr switch is the hard one in nos to find.

Note that you have the correct bolt for the choke shield.  Make sure you keep it.  The secondary choke pull offs aren't required, if fact, Cliff Ruggles suggests that you don't install them.  But, if you want one, they sell them new here:

Doug, I think that choke shield should be a semi gloss.  At least that's what mine looks like it was painted with and it's the original paint.

Geez, why do I doubt you?  You're the best!

By the way, I'm not sure if that's a heat shield or designed to divert air away from the choke to keep it from cooling.

I ordered the2 sets of the pull offs at a gm dearer, there gone already? I think I remember the 2 carb springs to be blue for the larger, and yellow for the smaller?
