I was riding around with my friend today (who is into tuner cars, not that theres anything wrong with that) and we were talking about how alot of newer cars like to hide the engine under plastic and fake crap, and he mentioned that in his opinion the best looking engine bays are those with the engine, but with all the wires and hoses hidden away so you see them as little as possible, and its called a "wire tuck"
he also said that some people do this as a form of engine dress-up
so has anybody seen an s197 with this done? i think it would look friggin hawt

Yes, There was a member on here that did it last year. I can't find his post now. He relocated the battey to the trunk and the computer to the battery area. He removed the plenum as part of the CMCV delete plates installation. Then he cut open all the wire looms to give him some flexibility and rerouted the wires to run under the plenum. Then he reinstalled the plenum. It looked incredible.

now that i think about it it does look pretty bad... it looked a lot cooler when i saw it at the car show. also im sure those plastic things are removable and after the car is out third party people will have no problem selling plastic crap that will show the filter and stuff. who knows though

honestly.. if you could just get all the wires away from the valve covers and basically the engine.. and more so towards the engine bay walls.. it would clean it up alot.. i hate how there is so much crap in there.. then you see the older cars.. and theres like nothign!?!..
on the v dub forums they have a bunch of guys to this and the only thing in the bay is the engine. No wires, computer, no coolant box, no winshield, or oil. EVERYTHING has been relocated. kinda dumb if you ask me...
Put some shiny LTs on that thing and it would complete the look......i would love something like that, but then if something goes wrong after this, well, i and everyone else who popped the hood would be lost
