    I've got one that is very similar, made of red carbon fiber that I've cut to match my FRC's that I build. Bought it on Ebay for $60 when they were over $350+ new.
    I have not yet had time to do any test fitting yet tho. ...
    If it works, I may paint it black & do the 10th Ann'y decals.

    I don't think I've ever seen where someone has used the one you had linked tho.

    I would call yours (TSS) the complete dress up kit.

    I would call the engine cover more of a "I'm embarrased by what's under here and don't want to show it to you AT ALL kit".

    IMO, it's not meant for an LS1. Why hide the beauty that's already there?

    i kinda agree . . . i mean the intake plenum of the ls1 looks great imo . . . especially after its change over to a fast. i dont know if id wanna just cover it up. fuel rail covers cover up the ugly/cluttered part of the ls1, the coil packs.

    I think a full engine cover is called a "hood". Why not show the engine when you open the hood, not take another cover off to show the engine. I see more and more new cars with a cover over the engine, it makes me think the engineers couldn't make it look good so they put the cover on top of it. Then some of these covers are a royal PITA to remove/install to do normal service to the engine.

    I wouldn't mind seeing what this monster looks like without the cover on.

    That's pretty sweet!!!!!!

    The one I posted was the first pic I ran across when I searched for it.

    After looking at it a lot and trying to imagine it all together, excep without the shroud. I think it looks better with it.

    No go, IMO. I love the way LSx engines look, no need to cover anything. Just polish, clean and paint some stuff.

    I did an oil change on a Saab today, it had the GM Ecotec 2.0 turbo motor. Had to remove the cover to get to the oil filter, maybe that is why I am biased against them. Just make the under hood look good and clean, don't cover it up IMO. One thing I like about '01 and up F-bodies is the gleaming aluminum passenger side cyl. head.

    I'd like to see one of those engine hoods on a car. I really like the design of the LSX. FRC's do look really nice as they cover up a humongous amount of exposed wiring, and give an overall cleaner look.
