Are the stock plastic valve covers still the lightest available?
Or are say Aluminum ones like the BBK's lighter?

I'm in need of a new passenger side one, and was going to grab a stock one.
But those suckers are hard to find....

Plus I dont even know what price range stock ones sell for....

Anybody have an ideas?

Honestly its like finding gold to find them damn covers. I look on corral, nmra, modfords, svt and all those sites a couple times a day looking for covers. I got mine airbrushed and i am not putting them back on the motor till the welding and grinding has stopped with the turbo build. I really dont like the rags and tape i have on their now acting as covers.

The stockers are light as hell and with the right touch can be made to look pretty bad ass. Here are my new ones.

TF valve covers FTW:potstirring
hell no.
They weigh too much.

I'm trying to shed weight, not gain.

Shoot I make sure to fart before I get in the truck to race.... I figure that extra air has to weigh something. :p


Thanks for all the links gang. you all rock!

I've got so many PM's on Valve covers, I'm trying to sort thru em all.:yikes
