HHP can get you the covers and the plastic mounting studs, the bolts you take off the 5.7 and just get new decrotaive ones the same size. the intake is plastic so if there a hair larger they will screw in tight.
Thank you very much. I'm looking to do the engine cover switch as I'm moving towards my suspension now and wanted something a bit neater (than no engine cover) with the DC Sports bar. I should have asked sooner as I just ordered high-flow cats from HHP. Ah well!

Call Josh tomorrow at HHP there like 50 bucks I think, Good luck bud!
Okay, I've got the covers notched and fitted - only one question: what does everyone do with their breather hose? I'll post pics of the covers once I'm done (used a dremel with a sander tip to grind off the "6.1" letters - worked great), but right now I'm trying to figure out the best way to handle it. I was thinking of replacing it with silicone hose and routing it between the coil packs, but I can't seem to find a good distributer of the hoses I'm looking for. Suggestions?
Mopar Performance CAI, Borla 125 Exhaust, Diablosport Predator, SRT hood, daytona grille, billet Autobots hood emblem, billet R/T shift plate
Update: I used bondo fiberglass body filler to smooth a couple of dips left by the removal of the "6.1L" characters and hope to paint it this weekend. I picked up some smaller diameter fuel line at Lowes that I'm hoping to use for the breather hose - I'm hoping that it'll run between the coil packs without kinking - wish me luck.
I was thinking Hemi orange for the covers (and coils) with black letters for the "HEMI". I've got a bright silver metallic R/T with flat black graphics and SRT wing. What do you guys think?
I like! Can't wait to see the pictures. Good luck.
Here's the part numbers I got for the ignition conversion:

Well, the Mayans and other Soothsayers were right, the end has begun.
Common sense is so rare it should be considered a superpower
The original half covers that GS lifted the idea from......
Here are the covers I bought:
Contact DNTNVME... he has put on a few of those for the 5.7 I believe... cause MDEWHEMI has a set on his Charger as well...
Thank you Bigal470
