I'm looking at buying a set and have the ls6 engine. Do I need to buy z06 FRC's or can I buy the ls1 frc's that came on earlier corvettes?
Thanks

You still need to do a bit of cutting.

For the ZO6 covers?

This isn't mentioned in StealthV's FAQ...:hmm:

Since he was selling them I don't think he would tell you how to make them.

Search on this forum. You will find several posts about what a PITA it is to do the cutting. I think the major problem is that you only want to cut a little at a time until they fit. (you can always cut a little more off, but you can't add any if you've cut too much!)

LS2 is different than LS6. I guess you can get the LS2 covers and cut to fit. I'd look into it before I buy though.

Not 100% sure, but I think you only cut a little bit off the corners.

I installed Corvette LS2 covers on my 2006 last week. The trimming is a real pain. You will have to become one with your Drimel!! :thumbsup:

Since this is a mod-heavy forum I would hope that StealthV wouldn't be holding out on us (don't worry, I can clearly see he is a very valuable member to this board)

I will be installing my ZO6 FRC's this afternoon on an 05 V. I will take lots of pictures and try to create a tutorial. I searched through 5 pages of results and didn't see an in-depth how-to with pictures.

I bought mine on Ebay.

The trimming takes a lot of time if you want to make sure you don't over trim.

Peter,

I have just spent the last 30 minutes working on the passenger side of my LS6 covers and it wasn't hard at all! I went really slow and took my time, I could have gone much faster and saved myself the time.

I'm about to start the driver side (will probably be more difficult as there are more things to cut (and with more precision).

Does anyone have a picture from above on the LS6 FRC covers? StealthV conveniently has his hand covering this part in his tutorial...:oops:

I went to the local Chevy dealer and ordered the C6 LS2 FRCs ($150 i think). Once you put them on you'll see exactly where you need to cut. I think it took me 30 min or so. The trimming is easy as long as you have a Dremel. It's just little pieces here and there to get it to fit.

I've only had my V for 3 weeks!! I'm easing my way into mod-hell. Not jumping straight into the deep end! :hide:

I'll make you a deal. You provide the Maggie and I'll create the most awesome write-up and in-depth tutorial on how to make it work.

I think you misunderstood...

When you provide ME the Maggie, then I will create the write-up.

FYI, I just finished my FRC's and am uploading pictures and creating a webpage for the how-to.

Passenger side was a breeze. But I have trimmed and trimmed on the drivers side and I cannot get the cover to snap down on the back corner. I trimmed almost to the E in corvette.

I didn't need to go quite that far, but yes, it does require a lot of trimming in the back there.

I took like 100 pictures of the whole process

I am making a tutorial for this process but I'll put in a few pictures later this evening. One thing I had to do to get mine to stay "snapped" in the back corner was to add some engine tape the "C-hooks" that grab onto the fuel rail. This allowed it to hold on tighter and not pop off.

I trimmed mine myself and it wasn't that bad. The hardest part to me was fitting it around the power steering reservoir and it required some trim and fit to get it to clear in the back.
