Understood. May want to rephrase your question then. To me it sounds like you are wondering what color to paint the manifold since you already have a BBK.

To answer your question though, the sky's the limit. In the end though, you have to live with whatever color you get so asking what other people like seems pointless to me. Especially when a lot of people on here like to bling this shit up with wild colors for some reason.

i know the sky is the limit but i like some input from others. There could be a color combo i haven't seen yet, like the one eugene pointed out.

Im a fan of matching colors, so i would do a white manifold, and black Bbk, but thats me. Bbk color can be anything on a white car and look good. They come red right? So if u like red, i would do white mani, with a nice red, ie candy apple or metallic, AA symbol, and matching red bbk.
