Needed: Material for Engine Compartment bolt on.
Dear Physics Forums members,
I humbly ask your guidance on a project I've just started . I need to find a material that can be fabricated for a device that is to be placed in a car engine compartment. Forged, cast or cut, it must withstand the heat of the engine (although it will not be directly mounted to the engine block), -40 degree Celsius, the shock of hard driving, and be environmentally friendly.
I looked at the bioplastic from Mazda, but unsure if it can withstand the heat?
I appreciate any information your collective may have on this.

There are myriad materials that meet your non-specific criteria. You will need fill in some details before we can narrow the choices.

Steel and aluminium are environment friendly because they're recycled.
