In Arizona, the upkeep isn't bad at all. I had my intake manifold done a couple years ago, and it still looks great. I use windex on it about once every other month. Then, I use aluminum polish on it to shine it up about 3 times a year.

I'm very happy with how it turned out. I considered having the CHRA be-balanced, but it doesn't have any considerable shaft play, so I'm just going to install it the way it is.

I was thinking of doing this to my manifold. But the compressor housing is new to me. I might ask around about it here in Cali to see if I can get it done too

Just remove the snap ring, pull out the CHRA from the housing before you take it to a place to have polished. You don't want all of that polishing dust getting into the CHRA.

Like I said on AZfullthrottle, it looks BADASS. Should match your car verry well. Are you going to run a upper heatshield? If so that would look awesome polished.
