I've been looking for engine dress up kits, battery covers, fuel rail covers,etc etc, have looked at several sites. Which has the better goodies and prices, sorta liking RPI and corvette mods and southern. Just looking for ideas from those that have been here a while. Have had my 04 for just a couple months now. Thanks, Marty

Avoid doing any business with Corvette Mods. RPI is good to go.

Marty,

I got my covers from RPI and caps from Southern Car Parts.



I wouldn’t trust Corvette Mods for anything! Check out the many negative posts in the Transaction/Feedback section.

I got the fuel rail covers with flames from RPI. Great quality and service. Here is the pic from their website of my engine. I have since added the covers for coolant tank, w/washer reservoir and caps.

Just snap in place, two C shaped notches on one side and 2 or 3 metal clips on opposite side. Next project is to remove intake for prep and paint.
