Indecisive.

Not sure if opinion threads are looked down upon, but Im having trouble making up my own mind.

Heres my engine bay currently. Im cleaning and putting some new clear coat on the paint, but this is how it looks for the most part.

should I get the red fusebox cover


or black? (yes, thats not black, but its the closest pic offered.)



Second opinion wanted: Should I get torque damper, upper engine mount or strut bar, or FE5 struts? I have FE5 shocks since my FE1 originals blew out.

the fusebox covers are 40 bucks at mrz. I was kinda leaning towards black too since theres a lot of red there.

Opinion threads are not really "looked down upon" here, but this should be in the "engine mods" sub-forum.


If you want to keep with the red theme, go with the red bowtie. If you want to break it up a bit, go with the the black CF.

I would go with black to add a little contrast of even the cf shown

What strut bar would you plan on getting because I know some of them are black so IMO they would match well and break up the red a lil. Looks good so far though, wish mine looked that clean...

Strut bars don't really do a whole lot.

I'd say either upper engine mount or FE5 struts.
