NASIOC GROUP BUY - Ends November 19, 2013





Tired of being teased for your corroded alternator and boring engine bay? Step your Alternator Cover game up; GrimmSpeed has just what you need. This cover mounts securely in place of your plastic factory cover and its asymmetric design is intended to compliment the GrimmSpeed Tool Tray Radiator Shroud perfectly. Available in brushed stainless steel, as well as our three standard texture DuPont™ powdercoat finishes, there’s an option for everybody.

Quick Specs
  • Laser Cut Venting - provides plenty of cooling for your alternator
  • Machined Aluminum Mounts - anodized black for a sleek look and corrosion resistance
  • Heavy Duty DuPont Powdercoat - ensures a durable finish and resists discoloration
  • Slotted Mounting Features- flexability for tweaked factory brackets
  • Drive-by-Cable Dimples- hidden on the bottom face, dimples locate holes for cable mounts where needed
General Design

Once again utilizing our in-house FARO Arm along with 3D CAD software, we were able to map the location of not only the mounting points, but also the smaller, critical components in different model years. A belt cover designed without these in mind can wear through hoses or wiring and worse yet, may contact your accessory belts or pulley, causing serious damage. What this means for you is that the best fitting Alternator Cover on the market is here at last. It’s what you can expect from GrimmSpeed, and it’s what you’ll get with this kit.

Materials

Our Alternator Cover is precision laser cut from locally-sourced material and the drive-by-cable dimples are punched before its CNC bent for a perfect fit. Aluminum covers receive a durable DuPont powdercoat in a textured red, black or silver, while the stainless steel covers receive a protective film to prevent scratches in both manufacturing and shipping. Mounting of the cover is facilitated my machined aluminum supports. Following the machining process, these supports are black anodized for a clean look and corrosion resistance. This is particularly important in an environment like your engine bay. Clear zinc hardware finishes the look and keeps everything planted firmly.

Stop releasing things right after I buy different things! First the TMIC and now this... Looks awesome though.

Can't say I'm a huge fan. Mind you, I've never found an alternator cover that I think looks better than the stock plastic one. This one does however look more functional.
If the sea was vodka, and I was a duck.
I would swim to the bottom, and drink my way up.
But the sea isn't vodka, and I'm not a duck.
So give me the vodka, and stfu.
If you're having forum problems, I feel bad for you son, I got 99 problems but your post ain't one.

hah, I love how they try to make it all sound very technical when it's a piece of aluminum with a bend and a few holes

Hey, we've gotta make it fun somehow, right?

In all fairness, though, the design process and manufacturing are rather technical.
