GM decided the airbox cover on V6 S10s and Blazers needed to say “V6 Vortec” to brag about their fancy pants vortex-making head design.

I decided the lettering needed to be red, because why not?

Not that anyone is really gonna see it since it lives under the hood, but I was bored and had red spray paint and this cover I’m waiting for the parts store to get the connection hose to install instead of the “cold” air intake in there now.

Taping around those letters was a tedious and annoying job that even an x-acto knife couldn’t make easier.
