BTW great work man!
Hey Thanks!!! To answer the question on the CF link that was posted. Those pieces are overlays and are glued onto the OE pieces. Basically what I do, but they use release fabric between CF and base part to allow them to separate the parts when dried. Then they finish the overlay and attach double-sided tape to base. You can see that in the pictures if you look carefully.

Difference with my parts, is I physically attach the CF to the part making it permanent.

Default Carbon Fiber Ferrari 360 Intakes Installed!!

Went by my buddies dealership and installed the 360 intakes. Need to completely finish them before we can sell them, but, they look real nice so far. They are 95% done; some final sanding, painting and clear coat and they're done!

Here are the pictures:

Stock vs. wrapped:


Engine Compartment; low angle:


Engine Compartment; Higher Angle


Close-Up Right intake (needs final paint and sanding)


Close-Up Left intake (needs final paint and sanding)


Well?

If you want to protect your BMW engine covers form the engine heat and keep the clear coat from cracking and yellowing you should line the inisde iwth lavamat...

I added it to my CF engine cover and it cut the tranferred heat in half...

Your work is to nice to lose to direct transferred heat from mounting on the motor...

Wouldnt you worry that the heat not transferring to certain parts of the engine would cause the engine not to cool properly?

No actually, the pieces I'm wrapping are more cosmetic pieces.

The fuel rail cover is intended to hide all the fuel delivery and management pieces and to give a nice clean appearance to the top of the engine.

Similarly, the valve cover piece doesn't actually cover the valves or dissipate heat from that area. It's job is to reduce the heat (block) transferred into engine compartment as well as to cover the parts underneath and provide a nice engine bay appearance.

Adding the Lava Mat will actually help keep the engine bay cooler and reduce heat to the parts signficantly.
