    I don't believe they have baffles and I would assume you can are your covers aluminum or steel? As far as needing them I don't think they will as they are going to a catch can anyways

    Oh snap! I'm late to the party here lol. Mike is getting all sorts of work done! You won't need baffles since its all going to the catch can anyway. I have no baffles in mine and no problems. Fwiw.

    Gerard, if you need a set of covers done just pm me. You know I'll hook you up!

    You can ask nick for the price I had to do special things for my price (he loves locos tacos) and they aren't on the car yet because I want them a different color either powder coated flat black or something I don't really like chrome
