    TO create the necessary clearance you're either going to have to clearance the cover more, or grind on the alternator. There are write ups on how to do this.

    YA these valve covers are really nice to look at. You canbuy them off them off the canton website or ebay. I would suggest getting them from canton.

    Just to let everyone know. I put a small notch on the valve cover also I took a good edge off the alternator. CLEARS SWEET!!! Also with alternator installed you cant see anything.
