Engine Bay Dress Up

What are some of your favorite engine bay modifications. I'm done adding parts for performance, and exterior (e.g., lip kit, wheels).

All I have are Raceseng pulleys, Perrin inlet tube, Grimmspeed Strut bar and 86speed gas hood shocks. Trying to pretty it up for upcoming car shows.

I bought an STi battery hold down and oil filler cap when I bought the car. I should have waited until I got an AGM battery to install the battery strap.

The PasswordJDM gloss carbon fiber intake manifold cover is gorgeous. Along with deleting the sound tube piping, it cleans things up nicely.

After your engine bay is clean. Mix armor all with 80% water and spray soak it all and let it dry. Makes it look better than new and lasts for months. Makes people get googly eyed when they see how spiffy your engine is. The BRZ pic is 4wks old and has had a track day. The other, Sorry, just a crap 300kw Wrx Sti.
