Hello All,

I am sending the engine cover via FedEx Ground to my buddy. He is going to make it look like it was made of carbon fiber. What's the approximate replacement value of the cover?

Thanks,

Dave

P.S. I will post pics when it's done.

No, don't need a spare. At least not yet. Just wanted to know what the value is in case it's damaged by FedEx.

Try and get one from the dealer and you'll get his inflated value..... get it from one of the forum members and you'll get it for free. :)

btw - place the 'Vette fuel rail covers on it instead of the stock trashlid, it'll look much better.

Good question, I did some looking. Part # for a 2005 is 12577891

Dealer: $262.20
gmpartsdirect.com: $136.34

If I remember correctly FedEx insures in increments of $100, the first $100 being free.

Shhhhhh......He probalby wants it insured so they can lose it and then get the Z06 covers. Nice strategy!:thumbsup:

If you have a 2004 or 2005 CTS-V then you can buy the Z06 engine covers, already modified to fit your motor, from Rick at Stealth V Engineering. The website is http://www.stealthv.com/

Engine covers is something I could really use. However, I can't find any I really like. I've seen the chrome "Cadillac" labeled ones but I need something different. I don't want the Corvette engine covers either. Any chance there's a company that can make some custom for me?

It lives on under the hood of a very nice V and in the hands of a true enthusiast! It definitely found a good home.

Maybe they could make 'em the way you want.
