doesnt the standard engine cover fit then? or are you after one that allows the inlet to be seen? nice spec, whats the mileage on it?
It does fit but sadly covers the lovely looking inlet! :LOL: So yeah might get one that shows it off but not the end of the world as I don't go to shows that much anymore! 😅
Thank you I am slowly finishing off a tidy, strong spec... :) I am currently at 8,600 now! :cool: :love:

Fitted a cover like that to my son's mk3.5 ST as it has a similar Dreamscience intake pipe and Mountune manifold fitted like you do. It fits well and is much better than having a bare engine.

The company who make them took ages to get it to him though.

It's quite easy to clean the old one and re-oil it, there's a service kit on Amazon for around £10 which is easy to use.

It won't get it looking quite as red as the one you just bought, but it will be perfectly useable. I did mine a few months ago, much cheaper than buying a new one!

Finally booked in to go see Fred at FJRS! 🥳

They are fitting my:
  • Black Pro Alloy intercooler
  • Mountune Downpipe/Sports CAT
  • Switch to Eibach Springs because my Mountune yellow springs are too corroded to keep running... (they will be for sale to someone to refurb the coating)

Possible plans for future:
  • Mountune V3 Exhaust (but never in stock when I feel like taking the plunge! :confused: )
  • m400r (Already purchased and uploaded to my mTune handset but awaiting the V3 :cautious: )
  • Possible Engine Forge for reliability but that's £££ o_O
