    What do you guys think of these valve covers?

    I am thinking about getting some billet valve covers and based on the pictures what do you guys think of these, like quality and such. I am later going to have them powder coated, these are also taller to accommodate aftermarket valvetrain components.

    Ah okay I was just going on what the description said that they used billet aluminum to make them. For now I am not looking to spend crazy amounts of money since I could get the Katech covers if I wanted to spend a lot lol.

    Yeah that is what I am unsure about. I would powder coat them though eventually if I got them.

    Personally those look terrible.....powered wouldnt save them. IIRC Proform covers clear rollers.....and they're reqsonable.

    They could have spent some time grinding down those welds. But that's just me.
