WTB: Flapper Mod and Pair System Block-off covers

Hello all,
I know I can get em at Kyle Racing, but I'm checking to see if any of you folks have the diaphragm cover for the flapper mod and the block off plates for the pair mod before I hit up Kyle Racing. Thanks fellas!

WTB: Flapper Mod and Pair System Block-off covers

Duct tape works for the flapper mod. I went to a hardware store a bought a tin cover about an 1 3/8" dia. With a guzillion tabs underneath, that's about $.85 from lowes. Price could be different. As for durability I've had it for more than 12months and it holds up fine, looks better than tape tooClick image for larger version

Thanks everyone for the replies. I went ahead and ordered the Kyle Racing block off plates. JusAnadaMexican, I remember seeing your post a few weeks ago. I'm gonna try it out. In the meantime, I'm still open to anyone selling the thicker flapper mod covers. Thanks

+ 1 here with the T.P.O stuff.....I had the flapper block off, before the T1 C.Snorkle.....
And I have T.P.O pair blocks...not installed.....I had fabricated my own years ago. I am waiting for the rare chance I stumble upon a "set" F/R of Aussie Valve covers.

He's talking about the link I posted, for the block offs and the flapper block off.

The brand is TPO $40 all said and done, clean and professional.

Lol thanks nobody. I pretty much got that part. I was referring to the snorkel and valve covers. Never researched those so I had no idea what he was talking about. Soo.. Yea... TPO is the way to go.. Got it. Haha
Like I said, got my block off plates. Going to try the lowes cover option. And if anyone else has a flapper mod cover they wanna sell, I'm interested.
