So some of you may remember me mentioning a few months ago about having a secret project that I was working on. Well, here it is. I have been working with Chaser Aerodynamics (aerokits.net) to make CF engine covers for the non SS Cobalts. Well, I finally have the first run of them in my hand. They were made using the vacuum process, and are extremely thin yet strong. They just fit on over your factory covers. I don't have pics of them installed yet, but will get them tommorow at the Cobalt meet in Charlotte. But as of this moment, I am the only non-SS cobalt in the country (to my knowledge atleast) with all carbon fiber engine covers. Let me know what you guys think

So theyre not stand alone covers, theyre covers for your covers? They look awesome, but that seems a little pointless to me.

well even if they were not the "stand alone covers" you speak of they would still have no use other then for looks... have you ever felt the plastic engine covers... they are very light... you might be lucky to drop 2 lbs... so in that case, stand alone, or covers they are just for looks...

i like them they look good dude, good job on going out and getting stuff done, i love being that guy... who goes out and has stuff made for you, or make stuff that people will eventually buy or have, but you were the first...

I understand that. Im not saying it would be a reduction in weight, or that there would be any performance benefit at all. Just that if your going to make carbon fiber engine covers, make them. Dont make carbon fiber engine cover covers. That seems totally redundant to me.

Very nice!! real clean looking, I wish I could afford real carbon things lol although people aren't under my hood enough to enjoy them. it would be a waste of perfectly good CF.

Those look great. When will they be available for purchase? I looked at their site and they are not listed on there. Also any idea of the price? I am interested in the fuse box and ecu covers

Yes, they will ba available for purchase, but the price is still being worked on. And yes, I know I need to get an intake, but I just don't have the money yet. I only have the CF pieces now because I got mine for free. ANyway, here are the pics.

That looks sweet as hell I cant wait to get the fuse box and ecu cover to match my cf fuel rail cover. How do you install them? Im guessing with double sided tape or something?

the covers look great for a cosmetic upgrade. Ive actually ordered sheets of silver carbon from robot marketplace to make my own parts(spark plug cover,fuse box cover,custom weighted knob for my b & m sts) there is a learning curve but once you learn your imagination is the only limit.good job
