Vintage-Style Valve Covers
Holley is pleased to announce the release of Holley Vintage Series two-piece LS valve covers, which update the look of LS engines with integrated coil mounts for Gen I and Gen V-style LS coil bodies and a finned over-cover that hides the coils and wiring harnesses. Available in five different finishes—natural cast, polished, satin black, factory orange, and gloss red—they deliver all the performance benefits of coil-on-cover ignition technology without the factory covers’ unappealing styling.

Don’t have room in the trunk for a battery ... or don’t have a trunk at all? Consider mounting your battery under the floor of your vehicle. Doing so allows better weight distribution, unclutters your engine compartment, and provides space for an auxiliary battery. Summit Racing’s Drop-Down battery boxes are designed for under-floor batteries. The battery boxes are available in stainless steel and black powdercoated steel and come with a battery hold-down. The boxes measure 10.5 by 7 by 9.5 inches (LxWxH). Go to summitracing.com or call them direct at 800.230.3030.
