    I'm getting ready to install the LS in my 70. I want to use SBC valve covers so my questions are;

    Where have you relocated your coil packs to?
    Who's mounts did you use?
    How do you like it?

    Thanks
    Craig

    SBC valve covers on an LS? Not sure that's gonna work out too well but if it can be done then its new to me.

    I'd like to see those too. The ends of the LS covers are radiused and the SBC are squared...hmmm?(shape of the sealing surface on the heads)

    I'm planning to use these

    I have some polished aluminum SBC valve covers with my old business logo on them. I've had them for years but never had anything to use them on.

    It's just if I use them I need to relocate the coil packs.

    Thanks

    Perfect! So you won't be using them just as covers over the coils then. I don't think i've ever seen anyone relocate LS coils, but it must be doable.

    Be cautious raising the valve cover height, You might have booster clearance issues. I suggest leaving them in the stock location.

    I have seen them relocated in the front of the engine and on the firewall. Makes for some long spark plug wires.

    And there you go!! I didn't know those existed and I'm not surprised that they do since I am using something similar on my vortec heads to put old style perimeter bolt covers on.

    It’s an LS. I say embrace that. Why try to make it look like a different engine?
