    Good evening all!

    This is my first post on the forum so I hope this is in the right spot. I have a 2013 b8.5 allroad and looking to get a Integrated Engineering catch can kit. My question is that I found a ECS carbon engine cover (on my want list) that I think I can get a great deal on local to me. My concern is that the cover won’t fit over top of the new IE valve cover pvc body with the an lines etc. Any insight on this topic would be greatly appreciated!

    Usually people with catch cans don't run the engine cover. Maybe you could modify one to work.. I would practice on the stock one

    There's really no insight to give. If you want the CF cover, you're gonna have to use the ECS catch can.
    If you want to stick stick with the IE can, then you wont be able to use the ECS cover.

    Which do you want more? It's pretty much as simple as that.

    Though it is pretty expensive, the ECS cover looks great. I'm glad to hear you want to rock our catch can! I've seen only a handful of modified carbon pieces out there, so cutting is possible but you'd have to do it right. It would look pretty slick if you got some rubber trim to cover up the cut edges of the carbon, I just don't know how much you'd have to cut. The OEM cover is much taller than the ECS one, and we've unfortunately only tried fitment with the OEM cover. Best of luck to you, sir!
