Engine bay Restyling

Here are a few pics of the new look. The red top picture is the what I used to have. I polished the valve cover, added JDM password CF spark plug cover as well as the valve cover bolts, painted the two ends of the tie rods as well as a few other misc parts, and relocated the battery into the trunk. Battery tray removal as well as oxb coolant reserve is soon to come. Hope you enjoy.

(old)






for the relocation of the battery i ran 0 gauge wire from the engine bay over the wheel well in the fender and through the gramit by the ECU. This way i bypassed the firewall which seemed tricky in the 5th gen lude because the hole would end up somewhere behind the dash not low enough to thread the wire through. I have pics if interested.

Re: Engine bay Restyling

looks fresh. Far better that the Red VC. The red VD seemed out of place.

Re: Engine bay Restyling

Thanks guys. Im happy cause it shows what a little bit of elbow grease will do. The spark plug cover was a little pricey for what it is but other than that this is one of the most cost efficient modifications for how good the final product is. I spent around $45 to polish the vc and that includes the $30 vc gasket that i replaced. The rest was all me, a pile sandpaper, and a buffing wheel.

Re: Engine bay Restyling

Lookin good man - but I hope you have installing a breaker for that battery on the "to do" list lol.


Getting the wires through the firewall isn't all that tricky, just takes patients ....alot of it... see my signature link.
