lol, never thought about how the engine cover looked before, on any car for that matter I guess when your car is perfect, what else do you have to worry about?

Good luck with that, man


Actually, come to think of it, that cover DOES look nice...

:P

You will want to find out if the mounting points for the engine cover are the same for your engine, and the donar. I know it clips to the fuel rail, so look for that. Also, take your engine cover to the junkyard, and go find a S2 car, and see if it would clip on. If the mounting points are not the same, it isn't going to work, no matter what. You may also have clearance issues, and a whole heap of other problems. My opinion, the mounting points aren't even going to be remotely close, and it will stop there. Mind you, I don't even have a S1 engine, so what do I know?

It does look cooler than the stock ones do. It might work, you would have to check for that oil cap attatchment area thing. And where else it attatches.

He**,I wasn't too crazy about mine after reading about so many people taking their'* off. It looks alot cooler now and people who don't know much about cars ask me what that is on top of the motor.

I tell them it is a VACUUM CLEANER for when my interior gets dirty.

I just crank 'er up and clean 'er out!!!!!!

As long as the mounting brackets are the same it will fit. Personally I took all my mount brackets off (gotta love weight reduction and overall cooler running).

Yeah, mine is awesome too. Wouldn't want another no matter. I'm still one for the vintage parts of the world.
