After seeing the Process West Verticooler package and how good of a value it is for the money and it includes a new hood scoop splitter, I think that's what I'm going to go with, and I'd throw your pulley cover on with it

The Process West cooler comes with its own pulley cover...

Yep. Although the 2 that I've had, snapped at the bracket that bolts against the starter. KB definitely looks to be thicker.

Darn, I thought I was the first to think of cutting the stock cover. I agree, removing it completely would be stupid. The back of the cover blocks air from flowing over the top of the intercooler. You may still get some air to go though, but I'm sure the difference would be measurable. I also kept mine because I have intercooler sprayers ran through the cover.




Evidently I suck at taking pictures. I also stuck the little emblem on the side of mine. Not sure if I like it or not.

and based on the feedback of how bad it is, I would buy a good quality one. PW has great customer service from what i heard and would likely replace a broken one. I'd rather just get a quality piece and not have to go through that trouble. If anything that's something i could sell to someone and make a little money back. Heck if I could sell that for $70 that covers another oil change of Motul.

Excellent work! My kind of modder.

KillerB's cover was designed just for people like you.

Haha. I was going to suggest that improper installation location may have caused it to break.

I like the pulley cover idea- seems like it would need to be a little bigger like the ARC cover for the EJ.

We've had some questions on the trimmed shroud we've been using so I wanted to post a couple pics for clarification...

Pic of the modified cover installed...



Cut along the line drawn at #1. At #2 follow the groove until it intersects the first cut. The cuts can be made with a sharp utility knife. Run a file or deburr tool or sandpaper along the edge to clean up any sharp edge.

Only aluminum can be anodized, these are made from stainless.

Plain, Weld, or Powder Coat are the options.

You could make it out of magnesium and anodize it!
