    ECS Tuning Textured Black Engine Cover MQB MK7/7.5 GTI/R | A3/S3 8V | Tiguan MK2

    Our ECS Tuning Textured Black Engine Cover transforms the engine bay in your VW/Audi MQB Gen3 vehicle with sharp styling, covering what needs covered and leaving the rest to the already-great appearance of the engine bay. Our design features incorporate the factory intake manifold design elements, while covering the unsightly, plastic parts that are often difficult to keep clean. Oil changes and between service top-offs can be completed with the engine cover in place as we designed ample clearance for the oil filter housing, dipstick and oil fill cap. Exposed ignition cutouts allow for visibility of upgraded coil packs. Finally a decorative aluminum logo plate completes the design. 


    • Designed and engineered in-house using FARO laser scanning for reverse engineering and SolidWorks 3D CAD modeling for precision fitment 

    • Made from a high temperature engineered thermoplastic to withstand extreme engine bay temperatures 

    • OE-type textured matte black material specifically chosen to match OEM underhood components for OE+ appearance 

    • A brushed aluminum logo plate, featuring a screen-printed ECS Tuning logo, is pre-installed onto the engine cover using stainless hardware and high temperature 3M adhesive for timeless appeal and décor 

    • Pre-installed billet aluminum mounting posts bolt on to the engine cover to avoid potential bonding adhesive failure at high temperatures

    • Further design considerations were strategically made such as clearance for "most" aftermarket intake systems and ECS catch can hoses


    • MQB Gen3 Textured Black Engine Cover - With pre-installed mounting posts & grommets and ECS logo plate 

    • 2 Ball Stud Mounting Posts (secure the engine cover to the intake manifold)  


    • Our ECS MQB Gen3 Textured Black Engine Cover was designed, engineered, tested and quality inspected by our Research and Development team in our Wadsworth, Ohio facility. We strive for the highest level of precision and quality through leading-edge product development technology including FARO laser scanning for reverse engineering and quality inspection, SolidWorks 3D CAD modeling, rapid prototyping utilizing our in-house 3D printer, and rigorous long term product testing. 


    • The included ball studs thread quickly into the unused OE plastic intake manifold bosses. From there the pre-installed engine cover mounting grommets snap right over the ball studs. The ECS Engine Cover can then be installed or removed just like the factory cover without any further tools needed. 

    • * While removing the engine cover, please pull from the underside mounting post area during removal to avoid any potential damage. 

    • ** Other brand underhood parts may or may not fit with our engine cover such as oil catch can systems, oil filter housings, blow off and diverter valves (including spacers), boost taps, etc.
