Red Powdercoating Different?
I don't know if I have an early version of this cover, but it doesn't quite match the powdercoat red I have on the other Grimmspeed engine dress up components. The other pieces more closely resemble the STI intake manifold in color and texture. This piece is a shade lighter with less texture. Overall the fit and quality are second to none, but i just wish it was a closer match.
Neon Green Alt Cover
Very glad they did the neon green color for the engine bay. Really brings the engine colors to life. Install not difficult at all. For more photos you can visit my page on IG om33zys_sti
Just love what they are doing over there at Grimmspeed
Without a Doubt the Right Choice
Purchased for my son for Christmas and made the right choice. He loves it and was very pleased with the construction and appearance of the product.
Aesthetically Pleasing Alternator cover
With a larger surface area. This manages to do the one thing the factory Alternator cover can’t do. Cover the alternator. I highly recommend you set the top of a shoe box lid under the area if you can fold one in. The only issue you will have with this install is if you drop one of the washers. Which I did. Twice. Had I read the directions verbatim this would have been around a 10 minute job.
But I was bored and a I’m a sucker for punishment. Anyways. The cover looks good. I think I’m going to run a red and black theme. Thanks Grimmspeed!!
05 FXT install / review
As expected from Grimmspeed a very high-quality product at a good price. The cover arrived quickly and with everything needed in a nicely packaged box. I did order the oem hardware kit a $15 add-on as mine was missing. Installation was quite a PITA I will say as getting the washer and nut on the bottom was quite a nightmare had to remove the alternator to fetch the washer I dropped. Just make sure to put a microfiber or small towel underneath that bracket to catch the nut and washer if you drop it( I did not the first attempt). But now that it is on it looks great and covers up my aging AC condenser and power steering pump.
2019 STI alternator cover
Love it! I have the whole engine dress system. Adds an appealing look for the engine bay and fitment was great!
Forester XT Alternator Cover
A must have for anyone looking to really clean up their engine bay with a quality part backed by unmatched Customer Service. Beautifully manufactured piece, the finish is excellent and very durable (I went with black finish). I purchased the OEM support bracket (genuine Subaru part) for easier installation since mine did not have it. The hardware is of great quality (as with any product that comes from them). As with any Grimmspeed product the installation was very easy and instructions are readily available on the parts page or on their YouTube channel. A must have!
Awesome product!!! The quality is top notch and gives the engine bay a clean look.
Grimmspeed alternator cover
Great alternator cover! Really cleans up the engine bay and their customer service is awesome.
Great alternator cover!
Great product. Gives the engine bay a clean look! Bought it along with the radiator shroud and I also have to mention their customer service was very helpful.
Grimmespeed alternator cover
Looks great very easy to install. I also have the radiator cover too the two accent the engine bay perfect
2008 Subaru STI Alternator Cover
Looks good, and fits good. Only issue for me is I have a huge radiator and aftermarket silicone hoses so the cover slightly dug in. The fix was to add a nut as a spacer. Not a knock on GrimmSpeed, just a warning for those with a huge intercooler. 10 out of 10 would recommend.
It fits and looks great!
I had been considering getting a non-OEM alternator cover for quite some time and finally gave in and bought the Grimmspeed one. It came within a week and was everything I thought it would be. The install took roughly 15 minutes (one of the bolts from my snapped OEM cover was very tight so it took extra time), and watching a video helped make the install quick and easy. My engine bay looks fantastic with the red one, and I find as a bonus that when I work on my car, I like to set tools on the cover because it is relatively large. Couldn't be happier with the product, and would definitely recommend it to anyone willing to spend the money.
Bought this a rocky mountain subiefest 2016. Awesome addition to the engine bay.
GS Alternator Cover
I went with black. Fitment is spot on '17 STI. Would fit my LGT as well. The GS cover looks great and doesn't interfere with the dipstick or oil cap. I really like that the logo is cut instead of printed on the cover. Finish is durable and perfect for the engine compartment. Install was a breeze. Pleased with the quality and with the purchase.
I have the black alternator cover and it looks awesome!Fits very nice and it compliments the rest of the engine bay. Must have if you want to liven up the engine bay.
So fresh and so clean (clean, clean)
I picked up the stainless one.....It's shiny. It's pretty. It's also a good way to keep those belts covered.
The install process was fairly easy, but with my giant sausage fingers, it was a little rough making sure the nut sits in place to tighten the one side. Still, totally worth it for both the protection and the bling factor.
One thing I would advise - if you are drive-by-cable and not drive-by-wire, make sure that you still route the cables OVER this - when trapped underneath, your spinning belts can eat into the cable covers, and that's enough to ruin anyone's day.
Looks awesome in engine bay !!! Cleans up the bay really will highly recommend
The fitment is darn good. No lose ends! Looks fabulous with the proper ventilation on the top! Nice!
