    Here should be an easy one, On my 71 z28 with LT1 350 motor, did the factory paint the intake with the motor or was it left bare aluminum? Mine had some remnants of orange paint on the front, I'm thinking someone just got sloppy back in the day but want to make sure. Thanks

    Yes the intake is bare but there will be some orange paint around the edges from the factory. They didn't tape them off but used a protective cover to keep from getting paint on it.
