Mustang "cosmetics" applied .....

  • 2011+ Mustang GT engine/intake cover.
  • 2012+ Mustang Boss 302 coil covers.
Took a different approach to installing the engine/intake cover ...
  • raise the mounting points using 1½" square aluminum tubing cut in 1½" lengths.
  • drill a ¾" hole in one of the sides of the resulting cube to receive the mounting grommets (part # BR3Z-9P686-A).
  • use 3M double-sided attachment tape to attach the mounting extensions to the mounting points on the intake manifold.
  • change 2 hoses
    • the ½" vacuum hose that connects to the air intake tube. *Replace|shorten and relocate.
    • the hose that goes to the coolant reservoir. *Relocate only.
  • make a 9" x 2½" cut-out, notch in the RH (passenger) edge of the cover.
  • paint the cover (including the chrome 5.0 emblem and trim) with SEM Trim Paint (part # 39143) - satin/matte BLACK.
Why raise the cover?
  • concern that the cover would trap/hold heat.
  • air would still be able to flow over the intake manifold.
  • minimize the hose (coolant, emissions, vacuum, fuel, etc.) changes and rerouting.
Post installation observation ...
Using a hand-held, non-contact
LASER thermo-meter, measured the temperature of the cover after an hour of stop-and-go city driving - 139degrees. The intake manifold was 119degrees (same a without the cover installed).
And YES, the cover does set-up, off the intake manifold, however ...
