You need some F-body aluminum valve covers in there to add to the "oooooooo" factor.

Ever figure out what you are going to coat the exhaust manis with?

By the way...your engine looks hawt, dawg. Word.

i have been very tempted in the past to get the aluminum valve covers, heck i think we have (or had) a vendor the made custom covers. but i havent seen them in a long time so i forgot about them... i think at this point if i do shell out more $$$ ill get the ZZP 1.8 roller rockers. but there a little pricy (@ $411.81cnd)


as for the coating, im getting the same stuff Bill W got
