They are nice covers! I used them on my Corvette.

I'd imagine you would definitely get a good group buy going if you had engraved CTS-V or CTS-VR covers...just a thought. Somehow "Grand Sport" or "LS6-GTO" wouldn't seem appropriate.

how about a V-Logo, Katech????
If you make it, they will come..... (or is that, if you stroke it.....)

We can do that. If you guys want to split up the CAD drawing cost for a group purchase it could be arranged.

Would be nice to see under a hood on a working motor (Vette included).

So ya, what lasstss sez.

I made some brackets for mine that mount on the back of the heads. The Katech design includes a bracket that "floats" the coils over the valve covers.

The linked covers are not my cup of tea. I like the vette of V covers...not GTO of 6.5L covers, lol! But I must say you guys do really good work they look nice just not for the V.

Problem is there is no room in the V engine compartment for anything. Im thinking of making a cover just for the coilpacks..

Do the covers fit a Maggie V? Any pictures with the Katach mount for the coil packs? It looks to me like the beautiful engine is not a running engine, no coil packs, or am I missing something.

Yes, they will fit a maggie. We've installed them on Magnuson supercharged engines before.

The coil packs are on the back of the heads.
