that's what i'm wondering. rice is all show no go. a compressor housing implies a little bit more than show.

maybe if you had a polished air filter box...

Yeah, maybe if you had yellow seats and plenty of APC stickers...I would qualify that as rice. How can a shiny housing be rice? I guess my shiny valve cover and shiny radiator panel = rice then too.
