To some degree you will see higher boost in WOT anyway, are you seeing higher boost in WOT at say 6K vs 4K ?
Awww give em a little break on that... They paint them so that they don't arrive all crusty looking to the customer.

You should be able to get that mani coated for around $50-75. There is a place in richmond near me that I have had coat all my stuff. I've spent half what I would have had I shipped to swaintech.

Completely agree. It was very shiny when it it arrived. It is just disappointing that it didn't stay that way. I wish there was a disclaimer or something that this was going to happen. I would have had it coated before I installed it. Now I probably won't ever get around to taking it off and fixing it.
