    I have a 91 K5 w/TBI 350 and was looking to purchase some valve covers. They seem to come in tall or short...which ones would I need? I know I need center bolt covers but wasnt sure about the short/tall part

    You can get adaptors to use the tall ones. I like the tall ones better, looks cooler in my opinion.

    If running the stock valve train the short will be fine. Also some of the accessories will not clear tall covers.

    Just make sure you get the centrebolt covers for your TBI heads, I dont even know of a source that makes tall centrebolt covers. To use the old style flange mount covers, you will need adapters like Paul mentioned.
