That ECU cover looks great in the Satin finish.

Another thing to add to the ever growing list...

nice work Rob,
the powder coating you are doing on those units just adds another alternative for the guys looking for the stealth look.

Cheers

Jeff

Rob - Is there anything put between the ECU cover and the ECU unit to ensure good heat conductivity between the ECU and the new cover?

I think you mean Heat Sink Compound that you can buy from Jarcar or Dick Smith. I was looking for an answer from Rob to see if he included it with the cover or recommends one purchases it.

These are the Pole Position ECU covers, and they have 3m velcro strips between the ECU and cover. Nothing else.

That's not good. This effectively puts the ECU in a hot box with a poor thermal connection between the ECU and the cover. The best thing would be to spread heat sink compound on the ECU and push the cover on making sure the two surfaces have a good contact. That way the cover acts as a proper heat sink (dissipator). As I'm an electrical engineer, I was interested to know how they were attached as I was thinking of getting one.

I'm curious as to how hot they get... I don't think it gets hot enough to be a concern.

You are correct ORSMT, there is not enough heat generated to bother anything. These have been on cars for over 12 months during hot qld summers without any ecu issues at all. Whilst we took into consideration the heat issues during design process, alot more heat is needed to cause problems than these units will ever generate.
