Preparing for the new vortech:

Since my old unit was in satin and the new in polished, I have to get the discharge tube to match. I only spent 2 hours here getting like this, and if I need to I will get it even smoother to match the vortech.

First the original pipe:

Next is after using 150 grit and then 440:

Next, I used some 600, then hit the pipe with some 3M 1500 grit polish on a buffing pad:

Hopefully this will do the trick...I may eventually get it chrome dipped or maybe just buy a powerpipe/discharge tube polished combo..

Here are pics of what I used:
