Does the engine cover serve a real purpose or are most of you hanging it on the garage wall? :hmm:

lots of folks opt for the Vette FRC's that get rid of the soap dish we received from the factory.

That's a fact. Although it bears little resemblance to the factory one. :lildevil:

That coffee table idea ain't half bad. And come to think of it, I do have enough blown up diff's to make a living room full of furniture. You may be on to something here. :highfive:

It does have a purpose beyond decoration, even though it looks like a big, "unique" Tupperware bowl.

Cadillac CTS-V Enters Elite High-Performance Luxury Club

"Engine Cover – To help reduce under hood noise, a unique nylon cover is fitted over the top of the engine. A closed-cell foam under the nylon ensures acoustical refinement. The specifically designed cover ties into the exterior of the vehicle and features the Cadillac wreath and crest displayed in the center, and V-Series identification positioned over each cylinder bank."

I've sure spent a lot of money to undo these with the Maggie and the Xpipe. :histeric:

:histeric: Still my favorite. I laugh every time I see this. Yah it serves a purpose but the LS6 is a thing of beauty and should be shown, not hidden for the sake of a few db.

My FRCs are on order from the afterthought place (not sure is they're a sponsor so won't name drop). Silver Cadillac lettering on Corvette Victory Red paint. Red you say? Why yes... to honor the engine of my other favorite marque. Can you say red head in Italian?

The OE cover will go on the wall (or afixed to my recycle bin!) after I strip the V emblems and make a pair of earrings for the missus.
