No, they were 16 bucks plus shipping (another 10 or so).

I'm sending them out for coating myself. Quoted at $40, expecting a little more maybe just in case.

The only downside to them is that you lose the sparkplug wire retainers on the front bank. Hopefully Bill comes up with a better solution than what I did

I haven't run stock retainers for two years. With the frequency that I pull and check my wires, they're not practical.
