No............but some think they are. Then when they start to lose everything, they blame it all on Obama. Just go look around the board you will see it. :D

The boat bling cover is about the most affordable thing you can do other than perhaps some billet fill caps and a can of mexi-chrome for the black plastic engine cover. :)sphss

Those 496's are like a big black blob. Every things black.
I've done the exhaust which helped out a lot.
I have been trying to find after market valve cover, no luck yet.
Even some colored spark plug wire would help.
I might take off the stock valve covers and get them painted to match the boat.
Maybe powered coated aluminum color.

I notice that the vent area (what ever you would call it) are solid not open.
Could hold air hot under the cowl.The stock had open vent slots.
Looks good in carbon fiber.But $500 ??

Another neat cosmetic thing I've seen done on the 496HO's is to strip the paint on the exhaust elbows and have them polished out.

Here's some I put headers on, then Charlie at Octane put Raylar kits on. They have some great midrange torque. I think they look as nice as I've seen on a motor package.;)

Here's before the Raylar kits. They still looked pretty good. BTW, the customer still has the covers sitting around and I can refer you to him if anyone is interested.
