2nd gen 5 lug engine dress up??

was looking for ways to dress up my engine bay ... not much out there

I know there's a radiator and such dress up kit, but the hoses won't fit the 5 lug. As far as adding in a CAI (not into it, already put in the aFe pro dry drop in). Anyone know where to get different color spark plug wires/hoses/etc. ?

I've thought about taking the large intake resonator that sits over top the plugs and putting some kind of paint/decal/logo on it recently.

Maybe...take the valve cover off and paint it a different color. Make the VVT-I and Toyota logo stand out.

No offense but when I used to drive a 4 banger I found it was best to keep the hood closed

I have seen someone with an XR do it, but not sure yet about the 5 lug. Been wanting to do that too. Engine bay looks plain to me, I'm getting bored of it lol.

As far as most of the hoses, I'd like to swap them (trying to go with an orange in the engine bay).
