This is the problem I had when I had mine there wasnt a lot in the bay to make look as nice as that of a gtst if i were you mate just replace the plastic pipes like intake pipe with a metal shiny one, I am sure if you asked boostjunkies they might recommend a set of hoses for you. Just look arround and as above find anything you can fidn to make shiney or spray a nice colour do it

Polish the inlet and get black silicone hoses for it. It will look fresh and new with the black.
