    Covers look good.
    Having them say Corvette on there doesn't.

    Oh come on....

    If it isn't in the Corvette, it isn't the Corvette's motor.
    The LS1 might be the same, but it isn't in a Corvette.

    Just an opinion. Not like I am going to dislike a car because of that or something. Just wouldn't do it myself is all.

    It's amazing how many people have no clue.. At car shows I will be near my car and hear someone say, now if that Camaro had a Corvette motor in it, it would really move. I always have to say they are the same motor and they look at me like I am stupid. I tried to make some of those covers out of a pair of vette ones, but I cut them up and decided to not use them. Seen some places now that make custom ones(not redone vette covers). Also JEGS has a Billet cover that goes on in seconds and is made for the F body, never seen it on a car though.

    Would GTO or LS2 covers even fit under the cowl on fbodies? I think they look a whole lot better than corvette FRC's, but have never seen them on anything.
