    As everyone knows, I hate how crappy the LS engines look. Plastic everywhere, wires and plastic shrouding really really make these LS engines look ugly as sin in my opinion. As more and more people but these in old muscle and hot rods, the market to clean up these engines is growing. I was bored while writing a paper for my college class, and stumbled across this new valve cover set up. After talking to the company, they said since these covers are a bit taller some modifications may need to be done with wiring harnesses and what not to make it fit. As you can see they mount the coil packs above the valve covers to help clean up the look. You will need to buy longer wires such as the Katech for $55 bucks. What do you all think? Looks good or not? PS after check sources, the covers cost around $250, coil pack bracket $60, and like I mentioned wires $55.

    I've been wanting to clean mine up too... they do look nasty. Thinking of some coil covers... just haven't found ones I really like yet.

    Same here. Some covers need trimmed, others won't work with our coil packs, and others only fit the nnbs's like yours. At least the market is growing.

    hi
    Proform LS valve covers that will replace your generic looking stock LS valve & give them a totally personalized look. They include unique mounting studs and oil-restricting baffles. Proform LS valve covers feature threaded mounting holes for integrated ignition coil brackets and are available in a variety of finishes to complement your specific engine compartment.

    On my Engine, I went and Installed Polish Billet Coil Covers, and then I Painted the Milled Lines Gloss Black....

    And when I need to work on the Engine, they’re Attached with Quick-to-Remove ¼ Turn Dzus Fasteners.
