I've talked to a few folks that has this, or some type, of engine cover in place. The critical element is having adequate airflow...(as Dave W. says). One owner....who shall remain nameless....said that he monitored engine temp with, and without, an engine cover....saw ZERO difference.

Hi Tom and Dave W,

Thank you for your input.

The only time my Roadster ran a bit hot was when I had fitted a rally plate to the radiator grill and it was extremely hot weather on the Italian motorway.
