Installed 392 Engine Half Covers On 5.7

These use the stock mounting points as the factory cover.Used a dremel tool to grind off the lettering and made a small notch for the transmission fill tube.Nate from rebadge.com made the hemi 345 decal.The last two pics are from the guy I got the idea from.

This was done on a 09 challenger,should be the same for the charger.

Here are a few more pics of others that have done this,with a dremel tool it is very easy.The mounting points for the 2012 cover are the same so it should fit.
