Default Do you guys roll with the top engine cover on or off?

I love how the top cover looks but I find myself taking it off fairly often to work on the vehicle.

I hate how the engine looks without that cover since the cover makes it look so nice.

I also hate storing it. I even ran it over once and cracked it in a hard to see spot.

What an inconvenience to store. Feels like it is harder and harder to get on each time as well.

I left it on, but I rarely needed to take it off the tribeca, lol. I leave the one on my legacy on as well, no since in removing it and having to store it some place. The undertray though thats been gone since the bolts and speed nuts stripped out.

On unless I'm working on it. It's super easy to take off.

I took mine off since I feel it traps heat under it and it's easier to work on. I don't care what it looks like. Hey it's lighter too.

The bracket(s) holding mine on are a tiny bit bent making it take a bit hard to get that top cover on exactly right. Freaking catch can hoses make it hard as well...although I don't need those catch cans since I got a JDM engine, I will definitely be keeping them to keep the internals cleaner.

I am going to put a big Ebay EZ30R sticker in the middle so I can feel better.
