So here is a before and after of the LS3/Tremec Magnum swap.
I am looking for a set of coil covers that will fit. Anyone know about aftermarket covers that work without lots of cutting / modification?

but I'd love recommendations on the coil covers
BTW the tunnel required only very LITTLE cutting to enlarge the hole and no tunnel cover required with the Holley swap kit!
questions? let me know

If those said 'Camaro' I would get those for sure!
I've seen them with the letters filled in painted with new graphics. Not hard to do and looks great.

Roto-fab makes nice covers out of Aluminum. They can custom make them to fit your car. They actually sent me a set to cut up to make fit and then they made me a new set using those as a pattern. I am painting mine this week. When I get them done and installed I will snap a couple pictures

They basically look like this though:

so I got on their website and they have an LS swap engine cover set. Would this NOT fit your application? This would be a good solution even if it still requires painting.

Those wouldn't fit my engine. I have the Holley Corvette accessory drive and the alternator is in the way and also the air conditioner is slightly in the way on the passenger side. Also on the drivers side rear I had to have reliefs cut due to the brake power booster and windshield washer motor. I emailed them win an inquiry and Mike was very helpful over email. He sent me out a set that he had put on his 69 Camaro for some pictures and told me to modify them any way I wanted. If I cut too much off just tape a piece of cardboard showing where I wanted the metal to be. Mike was extremely helpful. I shipped the modified covers back to them and they then made me a set using the guidelines I sent them. I would suggest emailing them with your request. If you walk to Mike tell them Greg that you just did a set for recommended Roto-fab to you. I don't get anything for referrals btw, just happy with the product and like to help good vendors out.

The Roto Fabs are nice but don't know about $350 a pair.

The GM LS3 covers we got for less the $100

so I asked rotofab why the ls3 version that fits the 2010 Camaro or the corvettes won't work of theirs. they said that they would be too short and that their LS3 swap version is longer in the back.
I wonder if I bought the rotofab LS3 swap version if they would also modify it for me if it didn't fit. I'll try to get a hold of Mike. Is he is sales or tech support?

I used the email link on their site. [email protected] is his email address.
