No wonder they cover it up.

Not as pretty as a polished Maggie, Huh?

It may not be shiny and pretty, but you can tell it's all business under there.

Were you able to get the top cover off with the tower brace in place?

no sir. but the six nuts that hold the bar in place are very easy to access.

Maybe our friend, eWill3rd can indicate what if any torque settings should be observed if any, or any other concerns about removing the bar.

i had a tech remove mine while i observed. i can ask what the ts specs are. i am almost sure (it's been awhile) they were torqued to a gm spec.

FWIW, the CTS-V STB torque specs are 83 lb-ft (112 Nm).

I found that once you have the cover off, there are yet more covers... there are rubber insulated covers on top of the valve covers and all kinds of crazy plumbing and wiring. I will leave it covered unless racing. I think it will cool faster between rounds without the covers.
