Question I've Seen This Before On Here... Somewhere

Ok i have seen a few ppl on here with either a new one of these that looks awesome or that painted it but yet i cant find those again and am not sure what the part is circled in red.... If anyone can tell me what it is and also if you modded it give me just a general idea of what i can do... think i saw one that was metal instead of the plastic which was pretty hot... And of course thanks in advanced!

99% of the time its just painted. It pops out, just clean it, lightly sand with something like 2000 grit, and paint.

You can also make a carbon fiber one or if you had access to the tools, form a metal one if you really felt like it.

That is the "ECM" and "TCM" cover or guard. I just cleaned mine then whiped with lacquer thinner, then sprayed with vinyl adhesion promoter and paint.

Wow that looks great I like that Alot but alright so it just pops off like the plastic engine piece? And right now I got a silver and black theme going on might go with metallic black for it and just scrub the valve cover and gloss it or something. Thanks Alot guys!

Hope you have re-installed Boost post cover after the pictures were taken. Wouldn't want and other fire. That boost post is wired directly to the battery post via no fuses. Accident waiting to happen.
