Need Help Asap
Garage called, all my stuff is in but the valve covers are touching the new rockers! I didn't think I was going to need new valve covers, but there we go.
BUT all the chevy covers I've found so far say they do not work with the LT1 that have a notch by the alternator... I have no way of finding out if i do or not, i dont have a ride to the garage and they arent sure what i mean.
so i need to overnight something from the web in the next 2 hours for overnight garuntee or i'm out another days work!!
anyone link me to a pair of valve covers that is sure to work?? 1996 LT1 trans am!

Ok the garage called my covers DO HAVE NOTCHES, so I need TALL covers that will fit WITH THE NOTCHES!

Also they said the fucking intake they sent me doesnt fit, which means the stock has to go on, which ISNT ported to 58mm!!! WTF ELSE COULD GO WRONG.
SO i need to know if they can mount the 58mm tb on the stock size for now or will they have to put the stock tb back on too!!

What kind of rockers did you get? What kind of intake did you get?

these clear the rockers and alt. there are adapters where you can run the taller perimeter valve covers, instead of center bolt covers. bad part is a company i know got some in and they didnt even have a hole cut in them for the oil filler. might want to ask before you order.

What rockers do you have? Maybe could've made them fit by cutting/ bending the part that was hitting.
