Corvette L98 Valve Covers ~ Magnesium

Cleaning out the garage and found these.

I do not have the Corvette Heads anymore, so if someone wants these, PM me an offer.

We sanded these down smooth and then painted them.

They have been orange and then blue. They have been stripped again, so they need to be painted as they are magnesium.

2005 CTSV BLACK LS7 Clutch/Flywheel/Slave, Tick Speed Bleeder, Tilton Clutch MC, RevShift Bushings, Domestic V8 Solutions (shifter, 8.8 Diff conversion, srut tower braces, sub-frame connectors), SLP cats, no cags, xpipe, bullet mufflers, Volante, iPod dock, G-force tune; 379hp 381tq.

It's just the heads that were different. Technically, the Camaro 5.7 was a B2L, not L98. The valve covers are the same. What year was it when they went to center-bolt covers? '87? I think they also switched to serpentine drive that same year.

Whew, sorry for the thread hijack.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

The Camaro WAS a L98.

The onyl difference in the heads is one is made of Iron and the other is Alluminum.

Yes, they will fit AND with roller rockers as well.

Yeah I'm pretty sure the Maro 350 was a L98 too. In my camaro book they mention a B2L but I forget what they were talking about.

Would these Valve covers be any lighter than the ones on my trans am?

B2L is the RPO for the iron-headed L98. Which is why I say technically it's not a "true" L98.

Semantics.

It's the same motor.

Just as the LB9 is the same, just short 45 ci.

Thanks for the unecessary hijack. Go away.

They will definitly fit as I had them on both sets of heads.
