Engine bay updates:

11 days to the show and shine. With that in mind, there was still one area of the Focus that I hadn't addressed yet - the engine bay. First thing Monday morning I handed over some part numbers to my friend in Parts and got the pieces I wanted.

Wanting to keep warranties valid and with the coming deadline, I opted to keep it simple and picked up an OEM Titanium engine cover and K&N replacement filter.



I had been on the fence for a long time about ordering the engine cover, but finally decided that I wanted to tidy up the engine's appearance so I went ahead and got one.




As mentioned the second part was a K&N replacement filter. I'm interested in seeing what improvements can be made to the already amazing fuel economy, and I can leave the cover off at the show for some colour.



This was the engine bay to start with:



And this is the engine bay now:



Two easy to install pieces which make a notable improvement to the engine's appearance. I like.

_ _ _

Part numbers:

-Engine cover: CP9Z - 6A949 - A
-White studs (need one pack): CP9Z - 6A957 - A
-Black stud (need one pack): CP9Z - 6A957 - B

Nice work man - are you running with the lid off permanently?

Do you know what other materials they are making the splitter in (I believe you said there were 3)? Can't wait for this to come out.

BTW - this thread is great, I like how your build is going.

You should get some color on that engine cover-it makes a HUGE difference.

I'm undecided on that. The filter is fairly secure without the cover, but it would only have to pop off once for there to be risk of damage. I'll have to see if I can find a way to really secure it if I want the cover off for good.

FRP and partial CF should be the other options.

You read my mind. There won't be time to drop it off for paint before this show, but possibly before the one coming in September.

One more part number for you guys, for the engine cover and accessories:



W520201-S442


This is the nut that attaches to the one exposed stud in the center of the engine cover. It comes with a second though, and frankly isn't really needed. It will definitely keep the cover secure though.
