Engine Cover

Recommended Posts

Talking to a guy with a Focus ST today and was telling him that the foam engine cover bugged me.  He told me that there were aftermarket covers for the Focus.  Does the stock foam one serve a purpose?  Heat?  Noise?  Anyone know of any aftermarket covers?

You mean the one with Ford Performance on it that only covers the front of the engine?  I think they really are just there for looks as I am not sure how much heat they could actually shield from the hood.  I had a FoST and it was there just for looks on that, although much easier to pull off since it just had a few push pins holding it down that it pushed into.  It may shield some injector chatter but I doubt it since the back bank is not covered.

Yeah, that's the one.  Haven't had a car this new and it's bugging me.  I'm thinking looks, but wanted to see if anyone knew something that I wasn't thinking.

Mostly for some noise control and looks because they can't seem to make an engine look good very often now a days.
