New Blower for my Vette

My winter mod was a new blower for my blown Vette. I am thinking about taking it to ECS to get a speed density tune.

carboman has a little shameless behaviour in the past
There's one in Debbie's Accord and one in Rachel's Element but not one in my Vette. GM must have save $.50 on that.

Norm,

I've been thinking of getting one of those for the garage. How do you like it? Please post where you got and how much.

Thanks,
Mark

$189 less a 10% Corvette Forum discount from Auto Geek. Haven't used it yet.
Norm


The Metro Air Force Blaster is specifically built to dry motorcycles. Water is easily and thoroughly blasted out of every hard-to-reach area. Each accessory tool is designed to aid you in achieving perfect, sparkling results. No waterspots or streaks!

The Air Force Blaster has a 4.0 Peak horsepower motor that blasts air at an impressive 29,000 ft./min. Your bike is dry and you are back on the road, riding proud.


Accessory attachments include a 10 foot heavy duty hose, a cone shaped blower nozzle, a neoprene blower nozzle (to protect against accidental dings and scratching), a crevice tool, and a micro adapter kit.

Thanks Norm,

I've researched Metro's product line. They were first used to pet grooming to dry off dogs.

Yes, and the air is filtered so you're not blowing dust all over your car.

You guys are right. I think next week I'll get primer and paint. It didn't look as bad before I put the other stuff on.

Bill..
Are you using amber bulbs in those clear side markers?
Come back & get the chrome coated ones that illuminate amber.
Why didn't you take them?
They were included in the price!

Clear 3rd brake light looks GOOD!

El They are clear amber LED's but the base of the bulb is yellow. I'm waiting on clear red LED's from Autilumination, if the base is red and not clear I'll paint the base silver. Thanks El for the side markers !!!!!
