Any of you Holden folk know where I could get a 98-04 Holden Ls1 engine cover? I know it will cost an arm and a leg to ship but I'm willing to get a price. Also, should I have any fit issues going on a 2000 SS?

The large single piece "turtle" cover you'll find on ebay.com.au fairly easily.

I do not know if this will have fitting issues.
Freight to USA would be a nightmare.



The 2 piece covers are very similar to 2004 GTO engine covers.
Left is 92067293 and are available
Right is 92067294 and Holden have no stock (could be waiting months).
These have text "5.7 Alloy V8" embossed on them.
These clip over the fuel rail in 2 places each and sit onto 2 pins each which thread into the rocker covers.

Those big singles must hold in intake manifold heat like a mofo.

I have one of these, too, and will eventually get around
to listing it. It is not a straight fit for a Camaro, things
like the oil filler hole near, but not quite, where the oil fill
is on F-bodies and so on. Probably a better fit on a GTO (?).
You could 'glas it up of course. I wasn't looking to work
that hard, and have pretty much decided against engine
bay appearance mods as time went on.

There seem to be a few Holden importers that hang around the G8 forums (like JHP). That would probably be your best bet
