Engine Dress-up, What Next?

So this is my engine bay as of yesterday, the valve cover is getting painted the same blue as the K&N Intake and the fuse box cover, what is next on the engine dressup? id prefer not to do wire loom, it looks kinda cheesy but if there is anything else just lemme know...

You mean a strut bar? and i didnt event think about that, do they yield any performance gains? I think the ass end needs more help than the front in my sedan but anyways, i can paint one of those bad boys right up too...

umm duffy u def need to paint the cover and also a front sway n rear sway bar might do the trick also it would def help u in corners n also give it more the anti roll look when flying through corners. haha gotta keep that ass end down and same goes for the front. just how do u take off the cover??? need to ask someone duffy so we could do it. remember we removed everything and it wasnt coming off. do we need to remove the spark plugs or no>>

the braided hoses would look nice like mentioned above
