Roto - Fab Radiator Cover

I have been looking at this mod for sometime now. Ever since Roto-Fab introduced it. One of my concerns was weather it would work with the INJEN or not.

Mike at Roto-Fab has contacted me and we worked out a nice proposition for me to try one out and see if this indeed will work with the INJEN. I have agreed to install it and take pictures and post my findings soon after I get the cover. I am going with the textured black one. I have some ideas for both it and my other under hood appearance mods.

Looks like it was made for the Injen! It wasn't, but I'm glad they work together. Thanks for giving it a try.

I agree, painted mine gloss black to go with the engine compartment black/silver theme. Looks great and sure does look like the two were made for eachother!

Thanks guys.

Now those with an INJEN who want a Roto-Fab radiator cover can get one with confidence in knowing it will fit.

Me like and it looks like it would fit the short ram injen as well

Of course what wouldn't look good under that engine Hood!! rtcat you must just want to pop the hood all the time I am very impressed you actually have me wanting to do something and I NEVER thought about that before. LOL

Thats awesome I have always wondered if it would work with my Airaid CAI also. I guess the tubes sit just shy of the radiator, and looks like its got enough clearance.

does this cover serve any beneficial purpose aside from aesthetics?

Yes and no. It does look good and covers up the radiator area to clean up the engine bay.

But it also now holds my light switch for the under hood lights.

That would have come in handy for the nightime parking lot festivities at the Fest!

I was working on the install of the under hood stuff mostly in February. The RX catch can, the Roto-Fab cover, the paint scheme for the INJEN and all the aluminum billet pieces. However, I never made a thread for those items here on C5.

I'm glad you took the time to post your pics here on C5. We get many questions about our radiator cover and the compatibility with other intakes, so good pics from end users are always great to see.
