Product Details

Designed and engineered by our in house R&D team, the ECS Carbon Fiber Engine Cover creates a visual underhood transformation like no other! Made from authentic, hand laid carbon fiber material with pre-impregnated carbon fiber cloth, epoxy resin and then finished in a durable gloss clear coat for UV-protection and extra durability, this engine cover is sure to be turning heads!

Our R&D Team spent a considerable amount of time designing every feature to perfectly execute the strict styling requirements associated atop the Gen3 engine. After multiple design iterations, ensuring that every edge and every line was made to perfectly compliment the complex and unique features that the Gen3 engine bears, we were finally satisfied with the shear beauty and styling transformation that our Carbon Fiber Engine Cover provides. 

A brushed aluminum logo plate, featuring a screen-printed ECS Tuning logo, is pre-installed onto the engine cover for timeless appeal and decor. Openings within the engine cover expose the ignition coils to compliment our similar styling to the Gen1 TSI ECS Carbon Fiber Engine Cover. *

Engine oil cap functionality is retained so you can easily top-off your engine oil between services without engine cover removal. Engine oil filter housing cap clearance is maintained for visual appeal only (compatible with OEM and ECS Billet Oil Filter Housing). We recommend removing the engine cover while performing an engine oil and filter service to avoid engine cover damage. 

Further design considerations were strategically made such as clearance for "most" aftermarket intake systems, ECS catch can breather hoses, OEM and ECS oil dipstick functionality and perfect accommodations to clear the ignition coil harness. Styling amongst the engine itself were added into our design including the intake manifold plenum shape where our engine cover perfectly wraps and covers the unpleasing OE plastic intake manifold. Individual intake runner profiles compliment the OE design and further add engine bay styling; being careful not to take any mechanical styling away from the engine our engineers worked to keep the engine looking like an engine. Slots between the intake runner covers keep cleaning and maintenance down as no dirt can be trapped between the runners. 

Installing the ECS Engine Cover is simple! The included ball studs thread quickly into the OE plastic intake manifold bosses. From there the pre-installed engine cover mounting grommets snap right over the OE and ECS ball studs. The ECS Engine Cover can then be installed or removed just like the factory cover without any further tools needed. 

Sold as a complete kit, our Carbon Fiber Engine Cover kit includes 2 specific ball studs for installation and a complete, pre-assembled Engine Cover.

Intake systems and other underhood accessories are not included but are available separately. Contact our sales team for more information.
