I love cheap Mods. I’ve been looking at a set of painted Coil Covers on EBay they would do wonders for the boring nature of the VooDoo beast we have under the hood. Only problem is the $$, too much for a couple pieces of plastic. Well I came up with the answer, $4.99 can of Red Rustolium and a little time.

A little anal, but brings out the engine? ;)

That will give you more reasons to open up the hood :)

Looks great. It puzzles me that Ford didn't dress the engine up more. With the engine being the centerpiece of the car, it would be a natural.

Yes I agree. The brakes are a better conversation piece. I still need to pull the trigger on a coolant overflow bottle. Isn’t that thing ugly? Got a black aluminum one in my sites (Mishimoto).

I'm sure Ford sees this car as a total utility vehicle. You don't need it to look nice to work well on the track. Besides, it's more fun to dress things up as you would like it.

I get the utility aspect of it, all about function. Personally, I don't care about bling. I do track the car and run in advanced groups. It just seems that Ford could have easily added some "wow factor" under the hood. Not a big deal, because I only open the hood to check on things between track sessions.

Jim looks good and much neater job than I would have done :) I did get the JLT and they did a great job as well. Their paint quality is really nice. Post a pic of the coolant bottle when you have the chance as I'll likely do that mod as well. We checked out a 2017 GT350 at Sunday's meet with an aluminum Mishimoto recovery tank...looked good but I'd personally prefer the black that you are considering...
