Engine cover

Just wondering, seeing as my 185 XR8 hasn't got one. Do the cool looking engine covers off the series 2 or 3 XR8's fit onto the earlier version? Is it a simple bolt over thing?

greetings XR8_Ute
yes it is a straight foward bolt on but you need 3 brackets, one goes aroung the alternator, one on the power steering bracket & the other on the front of the inlet manifold

Re: Engine cover

I assume i could get all of that and the cover from Ford? Or would i be best to get it off a wreck or similar you think?

Re: Engine cover

I was quoted $220 for the AU 220kw cover from Ford a while ago, but that was through a friend so I don't know what the actual list price is.

$465 including brackets... my last quote from Ford. Can't recall if this was to one piece or two piece shroud though.

Re: Engine cover

According to my local Ford dealer the series 1 had a 2 piece (front and rear sections) and the series 2 and 3 had a 1 piece shroud. Mind you this wouldn't be the first time they've made an error.

Re: Engine cover

The series one's didn't have a cover at all as far as I am aware, maybe he was thinking of the T series, but even still they are the same as the AU II covers just with different writing.
