    Default Holley Coil Pack Covers

    As most of you guys already know I've been looking for a way to help dress up the engine bay of my '03 Silverado. I like the black look under the hood (went with the black plastic K&N, painted the alternator black, ect) and then I came across these from holley. I was thinking of customizing them, and either paint or label a bowtie and cheverolet on them. Is anyone using them now? I know they will probably require lot of trimming. Let me know what you guys think. Thanks all

    I've seen alot worse for some companies. One company makes a different valve cover for the packs, so you can put the classic small block covers on for $400 others companies versions starting at $200

    I love them but I did research and they will not fit stock motors. They were made for LS swapped cars. Since they are metal, idk how they could be made to fit. But they are about 100 bucks more. I like yours (Heartbeat's) but I cant put the bowtie and chevrolet on them. I found the spacermax by taylor, but the valve cover conversion kit that cost $300-$400. Also I want to customize my vortec motor cover, so I dont want to have to get rid of that.

    Oh you did research those Coil Covers from Edelbrocks, O"Well thought it was worth a shot.......on the ones I have on my truck, with most of the G.M./Chevy Emblems today, they have 3m double-sided tape to mount them.....they may work with the Coil Covers I have???

    I have the holley coil covers. In order to make them fit they will need trimming. I have done mine just haven't had them painted or put on yet.

    How much trimming? Something I can take care of with air cuttery tools
