View Poll Results: Would you buy a $200 Plenum Cover if it Existed?
Shut up and take my money!
I would consider it, although $200 is a bit pricey.
Doesn't increase performance, so I don't want it.
I would maybe purchase it if it were a different style.

Would you pay $200 for a 4.0L Plenum cover if it existed?
I wouldn't mind it, but I think that I could better spend $200. Now if the price was a little less I would be a lot more interested. I really like the look of the first pic that also covers the valve covers.
I've been looking for years. I had an 05 4.0, and now a 2010 4.0 and have never come across one. I know it's only a show piece, but they do add a certain touch under the hood. I've seen people try and make them out of various things, but they don't look good in my opinion. I will pay the extra cash to have one that looks factory, but a touch better. Just my 2 cents.
I like them. I paid $90 for this one off eBay. My ex-GF has a black cover with silver on her's that I managed to buy new a little over a year ago. I bought this one about 4-5 months ago off eBay. I've had numerous offers for it since I got it. These are a very simple cover, but they can't be used with the strut tower brace. I had to remove mine to fit the cover, but it looks better than the cross brace, IMO.
Yup I love my plenum and I payed around 200 for it looks great and really cleans up the engine bay. Honestly, I have to say I'm kinda glad they are more rare now, When I'm in a V6 mustang class for shows mine usually stands out a bit more.
All you need is an alternator cover now and you would have it complete. The 2005 Focus 2.0 cover fits our Mustangs quite well. As you probably know, the Mustang one is almost as noexistant as extra plenum covers. It certainly cleans up the discolored/oxidized alternators. Yours looks good.
The only bad thing about the GT one is if you put certain types of superchargers on, you have to discard it. However you can keep it with a pro charger. I don't know anything about superchargers though and why they are in different locations. When I had the 4.0 I didn't think it needed any dress up under the hood but personally if I still had the car, I would pretty much get parts surrounding that area. I thought there was some of these for the 4.0 though already.. I have seen them. Not sure on the price though. when I got the one for the GT the price already had inflated so I got mine on ebay for probably 80 bucks. Dealer charges about 100 more. I didn't want the factory hood scoop which actually looks ok.. I do own the shelby gt hood scoop though but never put it on.. genuine from an 07 black shelby gt and had it paint to match. That thing ruins the hood if you bolt it on and the hood alone costs a grand.
