Looks awesome. Anyone on here that defends the oem plastic covers really need to look at some of these conversions to get the point of how these engines should really look.

I just did the same Katech install and love them. The only option I found was for the red MSD wires. I noticed yours are black. I found the MSD wires to be about 1/2 inch shorter than I liked. They were under a little tension and dead straight.
