The valve cover vent baffles are installed on the Comp Cams valve covers. Good vent baffles and cover venting help prevent excessive oil consumption caused by excessive crankcase pressure and reduce oil getting blown out of the valve cover vents. Shaft rockers take up more room than the stock rockers so many valve covers won’t fit over them. The Comp Cams valve covers do.
The Comp Cams valve covers have provisions for coil brackets. These brackets get the coils off the valve cover and allow them to run cooler. We have had LS coils fail from excessive heat exposure before and this will help the coils run cooler.
Here are the coils bolted in place. We used FAST XR high energy coils for a stronger spark.
Next, we bolted down our FAST race runner intake manifold.
Next, we installed the FAST 102mm throttle body from the old engine. er
We used FAST fuel rails for the existing RC engineering injectors.
One important step that a lot of LS swappers neglect is the cylinder head vent lines. Not having proper air bleeding is a cause of overheating in many an LS swap that we have seen. We were sure to use the vents!
