Valve covers !

So I am looking around at valve covers because the stock ones just leave me cold.

Here are the best two (that are reasonably priced) that are tops on my list at the moment :

A polished finned retro look
Holley 241-139: Aluminum Vintage LS Valve Covers Polished Finish | JEGS

The finned ones don't have coil mounts so you have to relocate the coils.

And just a nice polished easy-to-clean look :

And what's nice is they eliminate the coil brackets :

Re: Valve covers !

I like the look of the first ones but they are more expensive and you have to relocate the coils so ...

68 RS Coupe 355/350 TH, Detroit Speed, Hotchkis, Vintage Air, 8.5" 3.42 posi 10-bolt, MagnaFlow 2 1/2" exhaust, etc.

I like the polished look. There is nothing vintage about an LS motor.

I like the polished ones too, plus the way they eliminate those ugly brackets.
