FYI - If that's the carbon fiber engine cover that's a really good price... That's almost dealer cost...

Yea, that's a crazy good price. Lars464, you think your dealer would be willing to offer that price to others on the forum?

If it is real carbon fiber that has been properly made it is a pretty good price

Tell you what. My kit should be here this Friday. After I check it out, and install it, and make sure everything is OK, I will speak with them and try to set up a group buy. Any more detailed questions I will be happy to answer by e-mail. Lars464@aol.com

Ok boy's, here is the deal with the GM engine kit. The website is WRONG. The 3 items are all seperate parts. The site makes it appear that all 3 pieces come as part of the package. When my engine cover arrived today, I was looking for the other 2 box's. Called my GM dealer, and he dropped the bomb on me. There have been 14 registered complaints to GM about this. I am going to keep the cover because it is a beautiful add on, but I am a bit ticked off at how misleading the site is! If I want the other 2 parts its gonna cost me around $346.00 for the radiator cover, and $460.00 for the tower brace. Ouch!

Dude, that sucks, but sounds about right when I was looking at it on the website. They showed 1500.00 for all pieces. Glad you're pleased with the engine cover though.


edit - here's what I had seen.

That makes more sense to me now. I will call my dealer again tomorrow. I should be able to get it for around $1000.00
Thank you for the part number.
