    Unhappy I`m really dissappointed

    Got this on loan (new one is £368 + vat) and it doesn`t fit.



    Ok , I could hack it about, but, it would then have to be attached with velcro. I dont like the LS1 cover, it looks like a turtles shell, so I`ll have to make do with these ........

    So let me get this right, you can take an Astra coupe, cut the shit out of it and dump a V8 in it, convert it to rear wheel drive, and build a roll cage to boot, and ye cannae get an engine cover to fit......think you need to re-think that one.

    lol, nice one Dave

    Biggest problem is, it`s not deep enough to cover the coil packs, it clips onto the fuel rails, the LS2 rails must be lower than the LS1.

    The Corvette covers are nice, but surely if everything else is being holden etc. then the cars going to have more of an identity crisis than one of Anna Nicol Smiths off springs. I actually like the GTO cover.
