    Valley Cover Bolts

    When I installed my FAST 90 intake, I had to grind down the heads of the valley cover bolts because I did not want to buy new bolts. So now, these bolts I ground down are rusted on top and are now an eyesore in an otherwise beautiful engine bay.

    Is there some company out there that sells bolts specifically for this?...stainless is preferable.

    A Buddy of mine had the same issue... We removed the valley pan gasket & used ultra black on it. Just gave him enough room to fit the FAST !!!

    I have checked out items from Tioga Stainless before -- it appears that they offer custom pieces if you can't find anything else that will work: http://tiogastainless.com/

    Your FAST should have come with them. Its a buttom head screw. A good hard ware store should have them. Or, you can save the hassle, make sure you have a low enough profile of allan head bolt and buy from FAST. Might be 10 bucks more.

    I used stainless flat head cap screws. I was gonna chamfer the bolt holes on the valley cover so they sit at or below the surface of the cover, but when I put them on, they sat pretty flush (maybe about 1/8" high) so I let them be... topped it off with M6x110lg. stainless socket head cap screws for the FAST and it's all beautiful now .. lol
