Default Fabbed valve covers

I want to add CNP to my engine but can't come up with a mounting bracket for the coils.
I was thinking if I had someone fab up a set of valve covers it wouldn't be very hard to add knobs in the right spots to tap and screw the coils to.
do you guys know of anyone that would do this. OR I have a set of cast covers on it now - would it be feasible to have the knobs welded onto these.

My buddy in cincinnati is a top fab guy. I have seen him do sheet metal VC with 1/4-20 bungs welded on for ls1 coils with stainless Allen head screws

As long as the casting is decent welding them to your existing covers is possible. And good welder/fabricator should be able to take care of it.

you can of course go the fabbed route also... depends on what look you are going for

get a hold of class 6.
he's been welding and fabricating for many years, and just went into fabrication full time.
he can fab up and weld whatever you need from aluminum thru titanium.

We've done them a few different ways. I don't have a ton of pics here at home but I can post more on Monday. We used to put them over the covers but we would come off of either the base of the Whipple intercooler or from the intake. Recently, we mounted them to the rear of the cylinder heads. I aactually prefer it this way. I'll get some pics for you on Monday.

I was thinking of that also. I have a mount for all of the relays, Holley HP module and the MSD box mounted to the back of the head. I am thinking that I might jst make a plate to mount all of this stuff and the coils. minus the MSD box of course.
I would like to see what pictures that you have.

I wrote Eddie on Facebook to chime in on this post. I have seen what he has done. Hope this will help you. Thanks Eddie Young for your response.🇺🇸

I am running the Holley duel sinc distributor instead of the crank trigger.
Eddie Young do you have any pictures of the back mount plate. Do you sell it?
