Default Engine Help.

Alright so I want to make my engine look BA. it's a 3.0L V6 and I want to be able to put some chrome parts in it. it doesn't have to be anything big. I just want one of those engines that looks good. Like one that the other guys would be jealous of. haha. but anyway, is there some websites or something that sells engine dress up parts and stuff. Comeon guys help me brainstorm here. Thanks.

Krylon fusion plastic paint

Use a non abrasive sand paper to rough it up for the primer

I used a sandalbe primer first painted 2 coats and then clear coated

I see you have the Hood Struts on yours too Turtle jumper.
Another note most of the great looking engines I have seen and most people prefer keep to the race basics, braided fuel, maybe a powder coated set of cam box covers, But it would be hard not to get cheesy with half the top end of this motor being plastic.
