    The reason I asked is because I also bought some for mine, but they are the ones for the 2014 Z28. They are black like yours but say "Camaro 427".

    I have not tried to install them yet, but would be interested in what you end up doing...thanks.

    I checked a couple of threads and they recommend that you cut an opening for the dipstick ( a hole) or bend the dipstick tube, so what I did was I spaced it out instead and since didn't want to bend the tube either I used an aluminum spacer that looks real good I'll post a pic

    I also tucked my wires for the injectors since the covers I have clip to the fuel rail So my passenger side should fit right in now

    The driver side is going to have to be cut because of the booster being very close to the coil I actually think they rub when the car is on

    I'm going to try n make a cardboard template for the driver and go from there as far as cutting because I'd hate to cut too much

    On a related note, I've been looking at unbranded covers for my LS. You'd think there would be more options.

    Eddie Motorsports has some pretty nice looking covers. That's about the only ones I've found that fit my "boring" tastes.

    I will look tomorrow....

    I originally tried to buy these at the dealer and they wouldn't sell them to anyone but a 2014/2015 Camaro owner (with a vin # in hand). Reason was they wanted to "protect" the authenticity/originality of the Camaro they were intended for, kind of like 'clone prevention' I suppose.

    Anyway, a few months ago I found these on Ebay...
