    Need Valve Covers

    Well my engine still isn't finished. The update is, it will be a 408 Stroker, Cam, ported / polished / 3 angle valve job heads, with of course all new valves, springs etc, roller rockers and other things. Now I have to get new valve covers to clear the rockers. I have looked around (alot) and have come down to two choices. One is fabricated polished cover with the coils on top, which I don't like the coils on top. The other is one I can't seem to find who is selling it. I think Southern Performance does, but they don't show it on their web site. It's a two piece polished cover with the top piece covering the coils. Any ideas or suggestions? The motor should be done by the end of the month and hopefully I can drag it in Miami on the 20th in the Beat the Heat race at County Line.

    I think it was EPP that had serious issues with their two piece valve covers. Said they leaked no matter what they did. They went to a one piece cover. What rockers?

    I don't know. I just pay to get it done. The guy I use is a friend of mine for many years, so i know he only gets me good stuff. Ireally liked he two piece set, buti'm probably stuck with the one piece wth the coils on them. Oh well. Thanks for the reply.

    Thumbs up

    I can't wairt to hear and see it do some wholeshots!
    Calling all missing knock sensors, calling all missing knock sensors...
    I am assuming you're doing away with the PCM, if not, what are your plans to phase out the KS array?

    When I completed the stroke job on my Goat, it was a linger disatisfaction of mine that I had to leave the sensors in the vally

    Anyway, i'm digging the top end on your motor so far. Jealous!
