The ones on the left look like the ones davis runs, so would assume a stud girdle would be fine under them. They both look good

They are US$189 and are made by Garrett Machine in the states.Basically the same shape as the Moroso ones but cast alloy.The blue thunder ones are around US$270.I've been told you need to run spacers with these to fit girdles but not 100% sure.Maybe Davis can enlighten me.

Spacers are definitely NOT required...there is a bunch of room inside of them.



...shows that you have a lot of room inside of them.



...another shot of them.



This will give you an idea of how much space the girdles require. There is at least an inch more space inside of the valve covers.
