    stud girdles on LT1?

    I bought a 1995 Z28 has crane stud girdle that the giy installed before me. He has drilled 3 holes into them to bolt valve covers on. I wojld like to get rid of them so i can run stock valve covers. How ever the cam is 609 lift and has 1.5 rockers. Car gors 6500-7000 rpms would it be fine to get rid of girdles or would that be to much strain on the studs?

    Does it have screw in studs? What rockers are you using?

    609 is a pretty big cam. What other mods does the engine have and are you going to be spinning it up to 7k often.

    I wouldn't compromise the strength of the valvetrain just to be able to run stock valve covers. Girdles do provide extra strength and rigidity at higher rpms.
