ER Carbon Fiber Engine Cover

Installed another Cyber Monday present for the Z last night.
n54 Tuning had the Evolution Racewerks Carbon Fiber Engine Cover on sale from $249.99 to $179.99.
I could not pass it up.
35 minute mod to install.
Hardest Part- 20 Minutes to get the 8(difficult to remove) clips on the back side of the OEM cover which holds the foam padding on.
5 minutes to Hot Glue the foam pad to the new CF cover
10 minutes to remove the OEM cover and re-install the new CF cover.
GREAT LOOKING MOD.
I am still debating on whether or not I should put a BMW Roundel on it. I do like the CLEAN NON logo'ed look as well.
The Z4 will definitely be much faster now.
This is just like a COBB Access port Install.

I suspect a minimum of 30hp and 45lb/ft of tq increase with a 300lb weight reduction in the front end and also a 150% improvement in engine cooling. I don't see why they can't charge at least $3k for this mod.

Looks great!

My $0.02: slap a roundel back on there. Clean or not, the brand will add a degree of "finished" to your new look.

I'm the only one that clearly doesn't get the need to spend on this. Its a cover that no one ever sees other than every 3 months to top up washer fluid. I'd rather spend on an external enhancement or performance.

The Aero Dynamics that this cover provides has added 100LBs of down force just stiing in the garage with the hood up. I am still testing it with the engine running.

Outstanding! If you apply the ER decal it is the equivalent of running meth.
Mo power, Mo power, Mo Power!
