i might add that radiator shroud pictured was designed for an ea. i don't think the later model have the actual bolts, they have the self tappers, which would be an easy enough change.

on the matter of the injector shrouds:
a) i plan to make them a little more streamline maybe wrap wound the thermostat a bit.
b) i haven't made one for a bbm yet but if theres enough intrest i will.

about the radiator shroud:
if you look close enough you will notice theres no clutch fan in the pic... the shroud would require thermos moreso than not suit them. Therefore this shroud wouldn't suit stock shrouded clutch fans. i'm estimating (non binding) around $100 dollars each perhaps a deal for both. will be supplied with brushed stainless finish. will supply better photos of better products when offered for sale though. just gathering intrest atm

edit: would need to know if the stock thermo shroud (davies craig pictured) protrudes past the top of the radiator or not because this shroud basically sits across the top of your radiator and extends backwards. if this is the case it could be raised but then this would then create bonnet clearance issues maybe

with regards to bbm injector rail shroud... have you thought about designing it to go down to below as well, in other words a heat shield for the bbm preotecting it from the head,

Sorry, what I mean is to make a heat shield pretty much, shielding the bbm from the rest of the engine (head+block)
It could also cover the injectors, this would help my fiend manifold insulator out a fair bit, cold air = good air

i think the fiend spacer you have would be more efficient than the stainless guard, stainless, in anyones engine bay is pretty much for show and lifespan. it's thermal conductivity is crap for cars. might take a while to get hot, but when it does it won't cool down very easily. it won't create a problem and would probably be marginally advantageous but i'm just saying that it probably wouldn't do much compared to the spacers. i haven't done enough research to publish heat reduction figures. mayhaps if fiend if watching this forum (hint hint) we could arrange something for the purpose of research because i know how dedicated fiend is to researching power mods.

Yeah I'm sure it would do something prablably not a lot but I do know my bbm isn't heating up from direct connection to the head,
maybe except the bolts though
Any way I think with a bit of ventilation as well it could help....

i'll make some bits n pieces up but without a group buy they won't be super cheap. might start by making a few more prototypes to set examples would be a good start.
keep registering intrest.
