Anyone else noticing that their Ford engine cover (plenum) is rubbing against the hood insulation. Any ideas for fixes?
Is it only the Ford cover that rubs? I have the other one that came out last year.fishingjts said:I noticed mine was rubbing also... I took the insulation off... The paint underneath the insulation wasn't too bad...

What about my strut tower brace?? Will the tower brace clear the plenum cover??
If you install a strut tower brace, the brace will keep the insulation from rubbing on the plenum cover. I would go with a single bar strut tower brace so the brace does not interfere too much with the visual you get from the plenum cover. I have a double bar tower brace and it kinda takes away from the graphics. Steeda makes a nice single bar for around 99 bucks. IMO. Good luck!99vert said:I have the Midwest cover and also have some black marks where it rubs. Unfortunatley I didn't find it until the damage was done. The insulation doesn't seem loose, so I would also be interested if anyone has a suggestion.
