    Looking for Carbon Fiber engine bay covers...

    Anyone know where I can get some engine bling bling?

    I'd like to replace engine covers, batter cover, fuse box cover, radiator shroud, etc... Not all with Carbon Fiber but i'd like to see the option and I have searched like crazy with no results. Everything is for V2.

    Then why are you in V1? There is a d00d that does hydroforming and has some really nice procedures. Go over there and check him out...

    I think he meant everything currently available is for V2s, not for V1s like he wants.

    Re: Looking for Carbon Fiber engine bay covers...

    if you have the LS2 engine you can get a carbon fiber cover ... the LS6 engine does have accessory engine covers but they don't say 'carbon fiber' like the one for the LS2 does so I can't confirm that they are carbon fiber or not

    the part number for the LS2 engine cover is
    #19155401
    $999.00 - list price
    $839.16 - forum discount price

    FYI, GM sells a carbon fiber engine cover, radiator cover, and strut tower brace for the V1. Some people have bought them on like "clearance" for surprisingly cheap (compared to list).

    yeah in post #9 i listed the part number and prices (for the LS2 cover... the parts catalog doesn't specifically say carbon fiber for any of the LS6)
    i looked for that ... at least on the dealer locator - not a single dealer nationwide has that LS2 engine cover in stock (so no discounts available there)
