Thanks guys! General concensus has it to keep it off so that I'll do. It'* off for now untill I can add some cool (no pun intended) looking mesh to it.

Jason'* made the trip to his trunk 2 weeks ago, and hasn't look back since.

Besides, that'* where the audible noises from JL and flowmaster reside.

Default Engine cover

I am going to take my stock cover and modify it. There is enough empty spaces that can be cut away and still keep the lettering thats on it. If it done right the air will come thru the front and exit thru the back. I will try to post photos of it when it is done.

I always leave mine off. The */C looks much better than that plastic cover. Plus it traps heat, and I have to worry about KR.
