Nothing on the front. At first I thought about designing a clip or something, but with it trimmed down the two rear clips hold it in place just fine. Vertically it sits right on the front face of the core as it normally would. My point here is I don't know what adding any fastening would add to it? once the hood is closed it's squeezed between the engine and rubber seal anyway.

My guess is, with more aftermarket products coming on the market you will see used engine covers cheap... Very cheap... Especially ones with the front tabs busted that can be used to trim or modify.

I looked into a TMIC shroud/duct. To make a nice CF piece is really expensive. With metal/plastic it's still pricey for what it is. Retaining the stock engine cover reduced the cost of admission for our Aftercooler, which as many of you know, is already a very expensive piece. The other great thing about the factory shroud/duct, is that it works really well, plus free
