Installed them yesterday. Real easy to do, just take your time moving the wiring around. These are smaller than the factory ones. The back side has the rubber gasket. Just drop it on. Looks great. On the drivers side you can not see much.:shift:

Tell me a bit more about the gaskets - what do you mean "back side" (underneath? toward the firewall?) and what do the gaskets look like?

Sorry, I meant the underside of the covers. It is the same as the stock one, not sure if it is rubber or another compound. It seals the coil cover to the valve covers plus has the section that holds the top of the coil. Hope the photo helps. This is a stock coil cover. You do not have to remove any thing from the stock coil cover. The new one come with the gasket and allen screws to attach it to valve covers.

Thanks for the feedback on the gaskets, I thought I might have been missing something but all was in order.

 

I just installed the coil covers and had to reuse the factory mounting bolts on the passenger side. The passenger side factory mounting bolts have an "extension" above the bolt for a plastic piece to slip over that holds a covered wire bundle in place. (The wire bundle also acts as a light shade diminishing the effect of the pictures.) I chose to reinstall the driver's side star head bolts. Of course, the induction tube had to be removed to install the driver's side. The resultant pictures of the driver's side are real nice with the tube gone, but when reinstalled, there is not much of the coil cover visible to impress. I like them because they are black like my car and are subtle, not a huge bling add.
