Default Turbo_Steve's Valve Cover and HPFP cover review

As many of you know, @Turbo_Steve; has been playing with fabrication of parts for us. He's also working to get vendor status here, and this thread will move there once established.

I have received and installed the covers. These are aluminum panels that were powder coated wrinkle black. Initial review was of packaging. Packed nicely and no scratches. Both coated panels were plastic wrapped. Then they were wrapped in enough material to keep it immobilized in the box. Color instructions are nice and ended up easy to follow.

For the install, total time was 15 minutes including pics and backing out my car.

Because my piping is protege garage v1, it's own fitment is pretty much butthole. But I was able to remove the coil pack bolts without removing the hot pipe.

Hardware consists of Allen bolts, a washer, a spacer, and a little rubber o-ring that just holds it in place for install which is great, when all 4 are hanging prior to install.

Installed quickly. I slid into place, lining each bolt with the coil pack prior to tightening any.

Hpfp was cake too. Same thing as before. Remove bolts, put plate and hardware on. This one used 2 spacers, but the little o-ring kept it right. Installed in a couple minutes.
ImageUploadedByTapatalk1445539238.520808.jpg

Fitment was spot on. I bet others will have a lot more clearance than I do.
ImageUploadedByTapatalk1445539271.520627.jpg

Covers the coil mess and looks clean. Not sure if this counts as another modification I have installed, but I'm claiming it. 6 now.

Look for @Turbo_Steve; to be a vendor soon under Adapted Performance.

Looks good! Nice writeup.

Only sad part is the mazdaspeed logo is partially covered with this charge piping.


I will offer versions with no logo cutout as well & lots of color options.

Thanks!

The MPS logo would be badass too, or just blank. I am sure other piping kits wont be as suckballs as my kit.

Need me one of those sets in red with the mazda speed logo. It will be easier to install on mine with the fmic piping routed under the engine. This looks really good.

Is it possible to do a smaller mazdaspeed logo and align it to the left? Looks great though.

The version with no Mazdaspeed logo would be ideal. You can apply vinyl anywhere you wish like in this version.

Wow those really look good for engine dress up I like them but the only problem is that those of us who have TMIC won't get the benefit of this nice piece of work! Great work Steve!

I do want to follow up that it passes the wheel hop/spin test with the JBR high duro trilogy mounts. Had some fun, wheels spun, a little hop in 2nd and no banging heard or damage seen after.
