I like it too. The brackets for these valve covers place the coils like this:




So, I guess my brand new Granatelli LS1 wires will be for sale. LOL

Questions

Are they polished or chrome plated?

My coils are NOT mounted on the valve covers. And I don't wish to mount them there. Are there holes in these covers to mount the coils? Or is it integrated with the hold down bolts?

Nice covers. Nice price. I'm intreigued. Eric L

They are polished aluminum. On the intake side there is a series of threaded holes on the intake side of the valve covers. There is a $60 bracket that bolts to those holes for the coil mounts.

I haven't decided if I am going to buy those brackets and new wires or weld some bosses on the valve covers so the coils bolt directly to the covers like the Holley units.

Why would the holes be a problem?

You could always just weld the holes up, grind it flat and re-polish them. That should only take a day or so of labor. LOL

I think what I'm going to do this winter is wet sand my eBay cheapie valve covers and hit em with a hard wheel. That will make em shine. I've never rally been happy with the finish on these valve covers. Eric L
