I've heard that some unethical people reproduce an as-cast surface on the manifold where the incriminating evidence was ground away by laying a coarse sanding disk on the part and striking it with a hammer. Apparently this is pretty convincing once covered in a coat of OEM paint.

How these outlaws sleep at night, we may never know.
So how did that work out for you?

What ever are you suggesting?

Since I moved to the United States, I don't have to deal with that level of mechanical interrogation.

High quality junk here: intro thread and slow build thread

Did you know? Willys is just Willis spelled differently, but pronounced the same. Neither Willy nor his apostrophe are involved.

I wonder what kind of course sanding disk would be needed? I mean just as a idle thought

Not that I know anything about that sort of thing...
I have de-embossed and painted a couple of intakes for my own personal use. I would grind off the embossment then sand blast the surface to make it look like the rest of it.
