Which cowling for merc?

Im after a new alien cowl for my XRi EFI merc, are the ones on boatsandoutboards good, or are there any alternatives? I dont really like the look of the air intake grill TBH.
I presume with a top and bottom cowl it will fit straight on to my engine? It is currently clamshell but I have offshore leg for it yet to be fitted.

thanks

Thumbs up alien cowl

I also make alien cowlings and have done for the last 2 years, i sell to very well known companies. For those of you who visist the I.O.W during cowes and the summer will see almost all of the cowling I have made.
The Pro Stock Cowling which you have previously mentioned is a one off, it was made for an american customer and obviously not something that is going to take off in this country.

Yes an alien cowl with fit by removing the powerhead.

If you are going to fit latham side mount steering you may have probs with the alien cowl. The rod that goes through the tilt tube is nor long enough and so the bottom tray fouls it.
