Currently only have short-bolt style in stock. Will be re-stocking the long bolt style as soon as they're available from the supplier.

Photo attached.

Probably looking at mid-August or so on the long-bolt style. I've never used the short-bolt style with stud girdles, so I can't say one way or the other. I do know the short-bolt style won't work with SCJ/P51 heads due to the location of the exhaust valve spring.

I bought a pair of the long bolt covers last time around and they are great covers.

I'll post here when they're back in stock, so you should get a notification in your "subscribed threads" folder.

These covers are both the same height. Short-bolt style just has cutouts for the shorter bolts.
