Anybody have a picture of the LS3 or L99 without the engine covers? Curious to see how it looks under there. I wonder if vette covers will possibly fit?

look's like farm equipment, just like my 02SS's LS1. The beauty is when the accelerator is depressed. I only open my hood for service and to check the fluids.

Ugh...those heater hoses and that fuel rail crossover will be the first things to get modded under my hood.
I agree. Guess maybe that's why they covered it up......

They call it an engine cover because it is covering a gasoline engine, not an electric motor.
If it were only that simple, not all motors are electric.
It is open to interpretation. For starters, they call it a motor vehicle, yet refer to the motor as the engine

You put the engine on the engine stand to work on it, but the parts to connect the motor to the chassis are called motor mounts...

It is an interesting discussion :D

Looks like an LS1 to me, except for the heater hoses and a few other small items.

What's the V6 look like?

not sure how you would reroute those heater hoses, I'd personally get a coil relocation kit and try to clean up that mess under there. I like to go fast but I like my underhood to look cool as well.

You can tell it's a 6.2L LS3/L99 by the intake manifold. It bulges out more over the crossover fuel rail, unlike the LS1's or LS2's.

Also the throttle body is different on LS2's & LS3's from LS1's or LS6's.

It's all in the details.

But ya i will need to clean it up, before i put some custom fuel rail covers on there. I don't know why the couldn't do it like the vette or even Gto.

Thanks for the pics!! Looks like some creative thinking is needed to use Vette covers on there! I wonder where GM Performance Parts routed the heater hoses on the LS7 Camaro? Maybe they blocked them off, lol.
