Thanks. I actually don't have any issues with the Ford Performance strut bar. In itself that's an improvement since the EcoBoosts don't come with one. I also already knew CF was expensive on its own, I paid $450 for the engine cover and $250 for the mirror covers. I love the CF look but damn if it isn't so expensive. I was just surprised that the strut bar was so expensive. I imagine $200-250. $400 just seemed beyond what it *should* cost. Oh well, I'm not doing any more cosmetic mods for the moment. Next few things will be performance oriented.

CF strut brace was expensive, but I had a $50 discount at AM that was about to expire, and that was the only thing there I really wanted, so I decided to splurge and buy myself an early birthday present. And it's a fraction of the weight of the steel brace I had on before, so eventually it will pay itself off in fuel savings, right? (Yeah, it's amazing how we can rationalize the money we spend on these things!)

My 18 bay has more hoses than a HomeDepot garden section. Send help.

Not hard to see why they just said screw it and slapped a big cover over it.

I have a similar cover.
I modified it with a little slit down the side so I can see the fluid level.
Easy work with a dremel.
