    question about fuel rail covers

    i have seen a few engine compartments on camaro and t/a that have the custom fuel rail covers. i would imagine that they came off of a corvette. my question is where do you find these and are they difficult to install. they look awesome on there but when i look under my hood they also look like they would be a pain to put on.

    They're really not that hard to install.
    There are a couple minor things to do to prepare for the install tho.
    The AIR tubes must be out far enough way from the engine so they don't interfere. (Easily, but carefully, bend outward during install if they seem to be in the way.)
    The throttle cable bracket on the top/rear/driver's side of the intake manifold must be removed. Simply remove the nut with a 10mm socket & put the bracket away in a safe place in case you ever decide to put it back on. (Although it should never come to that.)
    The wire bundles that are attached to both fuel rail tubes need to be removed from the top of the tubes & simply set down lower as they will hold up the covers & prevent them from sitting down properly. Simply squeeze the underside of the retaining clips to remove them, or pull hard & they come right out.
    I know the other manufacturers send an installation sheet with theirs, as I do also.
    Also, if you have a shock tower brace, it obviously must be removed for installation of the covers & then re-installed. The SLP STB will not work well with the covers, as it is made a bit shorter than other brands like the BMR & Hotchkiss. The SLP STB will rub on the top of the covers.
    I bet you can install them within a 30 minute time period easily!
    Good Luck!
