Question coil covers for supercharged engine?

Morning all

I am working towards getting a Whipple kit for my baby while I am away and have been looking into supporting parts.
Is there anyone who makes a coilpack cover or something to fit with a supercharged engine? The factory cover removal leaves a lot of engine exposed and I want to neaten the engine bay up.

Thanks

The coil covers should remain in place, heres mine ... but yeah neatening up the engine bay is on my list of projects too!

Taking the coil covers off, lowered my running temp to 180 degrees.

I wouldn't run them, it looks better raw and wicked plus the covers hold heat and don't let it escape as easy. Just buy a cool set of valve covers and change those when you put the blower on. I used the Speed Engineering Billet Aluminum.

stalker in my honest opinion if your going to do it relocate the coils it looks so much neater and old school and you get to see the whole covers. It is a pain in the arse to relocate though im still trying to find information on it but its not that plentiful.

Would like to see someone post that has done this. The only place is the wheel wells and then there is not much space, especially on the passenger side.
