Did a search and found nothing. Can someone please do me a "solid" and pop off your engine cover (if equipped) and shoot a pic?
I am trying to figure out where the engine cover "posts" go. There are two black and two white from what I understand and need to know which ones go where.
Thanks in advance.

I don't have an engine cover on mine, but you can always ask the old guy Google a question like : "focus 2012 engine" and choose "photos".

Btw,

not sure what the purpose of your post was, but just a heads up if you're planning on adding an engine cover to your 2012 Focus, I would avoid it because the Titaniums are no longer coming out of the factory with them (possible issue with them overheating because of the design of the cover?).

More of a rumor about the overheating. Mine came with one, no problems with heat in 100 degree days.

It was likely a cost cutting move early in the game. It probably took extra steps of the plant to make sure only Titaniums got them, and that factory worker had to do an extra step on only certain cars.

Please stop propagating the rumour about heat issues. There aren't any. They cut costs, simply put.

My vehicle LITERALLY overheated on the first day, and since then I haven't given a shit that it didn't come equipped with a cover.
Vehicles prior to a certain date had them, they no longer do.

I'm not sure if this will help, but here's some detail shots of the posts installed on the valve cover bolts. The black post is front right and the two white posts are left side (facing the car) front and rear.

Is anyone else experiencing very slow response time when navigating the forum. Unless it's a slow Comcast connection. It's been that way for me for a couple of weeks.

It's the site itself, it was down for maintenance a little while ago too. A lot of times the page just hangs after trying to make a reply.

As I and others have already posted, after installing an engine cover, I haven't seen any increase in engine temperature. The temp gauge needle was and still is just below the half way mark. The benefits, a cleaner looking engine compartment and less engine noise.

I had given up several times. The pages will be perfect and fast for short times, and then go back to dragging and never loading.
Almost like a Denial of service attack.
I am hoping it is a temporary phenomenon. Right now fast as can be. Hoping it stays this way!

I was experiencing problems as well ... definitely not my ISP / connection.

The Mods (Tom?) are migrating FFanatics to a new server, to enhance performance. If this morning is any indication, then I'd say they were successful. I've never had FFanatics pages load so fast.

Sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread. Now, back to the regularly scheduled topic.

Aren't there four posts, three long and one short? I am considering this upgrade myself for my SEL.
