Default LT1/LT4 valve cover options?

Does anybody have aftermarket aluminum valve covers? Iíd like to see some setups. I want to relocate my coils and get powder coated valve covers for my c7. I only know of 2 companyís with them right now. Weapon x and katech. Both are very nice. Is there any other companyís with them? Itís hard to find a lot of c7s with these installed.

Default LT1/LT4 valve cover options?

It seems like after-market products for the 92 LT-1 motor are as rare as hens teeth. I've been searching high and low for a nice set of replacement valve covers (preferably polished stainless, but will settle for aluminum), but haven't come up on ShowBoxKodiLucky Patcher with much. There seem to be two universal problems that I can't seem to avoid ... (1) all of the covers I've inquired about require modification to clear the alternator and (2) internal clearance is also a problem because of the height of the Trick Flow rockers on my motor. Does anyone know of any valve covers I can use without encountering those two problems?

whatever you do PLEASE ask the seller what the plan is for your ventilation system. I am soooo tired of aftermarket valve covers that either only allow for stock pcv or don't give you any provisions at all to work with. they don't mind taking your money and letting it be your problem though!

I'll be more than happy to take care of you on a set of billet valve covers if you would like.

vetteZpilot's old red valve covers are actually for sale too, $499 shipped. They have a few minor imperfections now since we used them as display pieces at a couple events, but here is a pic of them where they are sitting in my office:

I agree. Unless they are sponsoring my car, I dont want names all over it. Hell, I hate chevy logos all over and the corvette lettering is pushing it too

Oh god, I dredged up an old thread, I thought this was Feb 2019. I want red ones like above.

We sell them without any logos for $100 less... would love to make those red ones... but GM didn't care for us writing CORVETTE on a couple of them at customer's request... despite every tom dick and harry doing that on all over the place :rolls eyes:

Katech quality is second to none. I have zero complaints. I have their inserts as well but not shown in these pics ...

What a bummer, probably because it's so nice that they could see it being a really big seller
