wow i don't miss a stock engine bay. if your feeling up to it you can drill a hole by your coil, or somewhere that is centrally located to everything. take out your inner fenderwell on the driver side, and well you'll need to make 2 holes. extend your factory wires and feed them thru one hole, secure them inside your fenderwell and come out the other hole.
id just get the cover if i were you, i dunno why people took them off in the first place that and the distributor boot i like those and i wish people left them on or kept them for when they sell their cars

yea i don't how much time u have on your hands or how much mechanically inclined u are u but could strip the engine bay completely motor and all... clean up your engine bay and repaint with some high heat engine spray paint and throw every thing back all clean up, repainted, or replaced and re route all your wiring and bundle up as best and as neat as u can and some new wire loom and like some other people said put a cover on some or things that bother u they sell some or you can go to town with a sheet of aluminum or stain less or something ( stainless is heavy tho)... it is a alot of work tho just to make your car look nice but i look at it like a peace of art every time u open your hood that what i am doing to my car but i am removing alot of stuff power steering a/c batt to the back but u don't go to go as crazy as me those

well thanks guys. I have the cover, just took it off. Maybe when the car is running Ill go thru and get rid of some of the $hit I dont need, I think theres a line or two I dont need, not sure, but Ill experiment. Hope the car doesnt go bOOM if I take off the wrong wires, lol :hihi:
i did mine in 2-3 days, but i took a lot of stuff out and didn't havea lot of the stuff there either. i think a solid 5-7 days start to finish with a couple hours a day, and then a good portion of saturday sunday.
I'm planning on hiding a lot of the wires and hoses when I take my engine out this year...
You'd be surprised how much better it will look if you just clean it up. Give it a good hose down, and get a can of tire shine. Spray the tire shine everywhere (make sure to cover up electrical stuff), wipe off all the real nasty parts and then spray it all off.
