Plenum Cover

Well...after searching for a V6 plenum cover and coming up empty, I decided to modify a cover from a V8. I found one on ebay cheap with scratches but great for cutting and fitting. My next challenge will be to find a way to mount it securely. I'll post pics once I get to good place.

Has anyone else tried this? So far it looks pretty good!

OK...remember, it's a work in progress. Still deciding how to attach/mount. It sit on the engine pretty well. I cut out portions to allow it to go over the coil pack, etc. Let me know what you think!

It looks good i would do some fibreglass work on the sides to make it all seem to fit and then use the code and paint with thermal paint. but this would be a bit time consuming

Yes. I'm just on the "development" phase right now. If I can make this work, I can add or cut as necessary. I think it might work but mounting is the issue now. Once I have that, I can make the final mods.
