quote:i could be wrong, but i think you simply do remove one of those covers. if they're anything like on the C5, they easily pop out. the current LSx engines have the oil fill cap on the valve cover, which is under the covers in the pic. i also am pretty sure the LSx engines have the yellow handled dipsticks, meaning the dipstick should be easily seen. but it's not. so you may be right after all, but i find it really hard to believe gm would go in that direction with (of all things) the corvette. -michael
