Default Let's see those engine bays!

Looking to dress-up my engine bay, but not sure what route to go. I have a '16 Shark Gray Z with carbon flash, carbon fiber, and red accents. I already have red coil covers from [email protected], just haven't installed them yet.

I've done some research and have seen options from [email protected], RPI, American Heritage, etc., but I thought it'd be nice to have one collective thread with dressed up engine bay pics (preferably Z06/LT4 since that's what I have and am interested in).

Here is mine. Nothing special yet. Just the carbon fiber shroud from LGM and red coil covers (not installed) from [email protected] Probably going to take this opportunity to upgrade to the '17+ supercharger lid.

I’ve added some color, but that’s about it.

Subtle, but nice! I like it!

Is that Shark Gray?

Yep. I wanted to match up with the Shark Gray vents.

I eventually want to relocate the coils and all of the associated wiring off the valve covers & engine...

^^Very nice! Like the subtle blue accents and carbon fiber - especially that intake! Is it Halltech?

Also, is the cowl real carbon fiber or hydro dipped?If it's dipped, then very impressive! If it's real, where did you get it?

And where did you get the carbon fiber fuse box cover? Looks like RPI used to have one, but don't see an option to actually buy it: https://www.rpidesigns.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=4872

Yes, intake is Halltech, yes its all real carbon fiber.
The wiper cowl and fuse box lid both came from Apsis USA. (vendor here.)

Not a great shot, but the only one I can find.
