    Gotcha. socket heads can be a pain. They give a little cleaner look tho. What would you think of torx head?

    Me personally, I have the same feeling with torx heads as the sockets. But that’s probably just because I don’t have as many tools/adapters devoted to those as typical bolts. As you said though, they both do look cleaner.

    Any issues with the dipstick clearing/mounting on the other side with the extra height or did you just slightly bend it out of the way?

    Cool thanks for your response. I have a 06 300SRT8 we working on installing a set of these onto (black fab valve covers with red MSD coils) and my dipstick has a dual tab mount that attaches to the valve cover studs themselves...thinking I will swap to a 6.1 challenger dipstick tube that will mount to the header bolts, bend it a little if necessary and call it a day. Yours looks great with the silver!

    If anyone else has bought a set of these, can you post any problems you have had with them and a few pics? Thank you!
