Hi guys, can anyone please confirm if an engine cover from an EL V8 will be a direct fit for a EB V8?

If you have a HO intake then it should fit straight up. Mine came off when I changed the intake.

Call me a cynic Pete, but I get the vague impression that you are not a fan of the BBQ plate? :)

I painted mine up nicely in heritage green and red 5.0l V8 logo and hung it on the wall, looks great and adds 20 hp to my wall :lol: .

I had a mate with a cruiser troopy who had a old steel rack just above his exhaust manifold, best pie warmer ever. :idea:
