OK since i have decided i am going to put the Fusion in a few shows coming up i want to dress up the engine back alittle with some colored split loom and maybe painting the valve cover and some of the plastic parts. Now for the question, what color should i go with? I have the steeda intake so the filter is blue but that could be changed to red by cleaning and reoiling with K&N oil. But then again i have Iowa hawkeye plates on it and they are black and yellow. So what do you guys think what color(s) should i look into.

I think red accents would be cool, even with some yellow loom on the wires, AFTER you re-oil your filter with the K&N oil. I don't think blue will stand out enough against black. Plus, the red will match your calipers.

I have always been a fan of matching the engine colors with the the car's color. If your car is black, paint her parts gloss black with high temp clear coat.
Ford Blue is also a nice color, and will match the intake.

Well i went out this afternoon and made a rough template. but i think you will get the idea. I am going to try and make this out of sheet metal so that i can paint and clear coat it put decals or emblems what ever i feel like. Here are a few pics. As you can see it is just a rough template but when i make the real one i will use a chop saw, dremal and hole saw to make sure everything looks good. let me know what you think?

I take it that engine covers are standard on the Milan? I wonder what it would cost to fab some of those off of the Milan cover if I did a run of 20? I may look into this.

Yes it was made by made by confusion
I am in the process of repainting it. The engine bay gets pretty hot while sitting in the sun and the paint started to blister. So I am going with a high heat paint this time.

The engine cover looks great. Too bad he didn't go into a side business making them.

I've never been a fan of bright-colored flex loom. I think it looks real cheap and cheezy. If you are thinking of shows, just keep everything clean -- and maybe add some additional Steeda items to match your intake. They are pricey, but will look much better than color split loom tubing.
