    I have used an 1 1/4" freeze plug in the back of the intake in the past and had good results. I'm not a huge fan of the rubber expansion plug.. The baffled fittings are a great idea and can work nicely. If you so desire you could ship your valve covers up to me and I'll weld the fittings on for you and send them back. Not like I have much better things to do since my car is finished for now, lol. What type of valve covers are you running currently? Maybe we could hook you up with some nice fabricated aluminum ones???

    Currently I am running stock valve covers I believe they have no other markings to say other wise and what would a set of fab valve covers cost me to do ... I can pay you in Doritos tacos ;)

    My buddy sells fabricated sheet metal ones for a good deal I'll ask and get back to you. You want something polished and flashy or plain and simple?

    The ones on the car now are not the covers I'm using nick got me a set of fabricated aluminum procomp covers they require a 3/8" spacer at minimum to clear the intake and the bungs he is using do not protrude to the inside of the cover
