ZZ4 with Corvette Scripted Valve Covers
I wanted to keep a somewhat original look
including the Corvette Scripted Valve Covers. Two things are
need (1) Adaptors because the L98 head have center bolts for
the Valve Covers and (2) the need for a PCV system.
Here is the adaptors, kind of simple and self explanatory. I polish them better match to valve covers.
** NOTE **
Instruction call for using supplied small ring rubber gasket
but I found out these, at least in my case, leak bad so I
use some stock GM rubber gasket in-between adapter and head.
I also use FELPRO VS12869T Perma
Dry Valve cover gaskets.
The PVC system required a little more ingenuity and design to get installed with the dual quad manifold. Here is my solution ==>> ZZ4-PCV System
