2014 Ford Focus SE Sedan
I added the engine cover and like the way it finishes off the look.

Skill: Beginner
Time: less than 15 minutes
Tools: 1/4" drive, 10mm deep well

Parts:
Engine Cover: CP9Z-6A949-A (~$50)
Stud #1: CP9Z-6A957-A
Stud #2: CP9Z-6A957-B
Nut/washer: W520201-S442

My images shows which studs to use where. Be careful not to drop one, as my under engine cover was a good catch [:)] and made for a difficult retrieval.

Just tighten the studs down on the correct bolts, snap cover onto the three studs and tighten nut/washer on the bolt that comes through cover from engine.

Special thanks to #TWENTY for originally documenting this and showing how nice it looks.

You should get a set of the Redline Tuning hood struts to compliment the engine cover. I just got them for my car and I will be ordering the engine cover before the (TFR)Texas Focus Roundup next month.

I got mine through Village Ford, and it really dresses up the engine. I'm going to eventually prime and paint it the color of my car with high-heat paint.
I was thinking something similar, only an accent color. Perhaps red to match my interior.

Let me know what paint you go with, if you give it a try before I do.

Yes... been thinking about these. Not sure how many times I will be getting under the hood to justify the $150. But I agree that they would dress it up even more.

Actually, that was the ONLY thing I missed about my old car...it was so functional! Once you put them on, you'll wonder how you ever did without them.

What/where/when is this Texas Focus Roundup you speak of?

Edit-If you guys are patient they come up once in a while on the for sale section. I picked one up in perfect condition for $50 shipped.

I was contemplating removing the insulation on the underside of mine and adding a heat reflective tape. I did it on my old cbr1000rr where the lower fairing was melting due to the heat of the exhaust. Truth be told the factory put the same insulation material on the lower fairing and it pretty much did nothing for the heat. I didn't have any further issues after adding the heat reflective tape (it's chrome in color). Obviously, the 180 t-stat would be my best option but I'm holding off until the warranty is up for that. These covers get HOT
