These Brushed Fabricated Aluminum Mustang Valve Covers are a great bolt-on for 1979-93 Mustangs. They are tall enough to clear most roller rockers and add a custom race inspired look. They include a billet aluminum filler tube,and oil cap as well as new bolts to attach them to the head.
* * *NOTE: Intake spacer and additional hood clearance may be required on 86-93 EFI applications. Depending on Which style A/C compressor is being used, Valve covers may have very little clearance between them and the back of the A/C compressor. You must check for clearance on your specific application!* * *
I wrote a review on these back on 2/7/13 that i was worried they might leak and i just got around to finishing my car and tested the valve covers and they do leak horrible.I used ford motorsports gaskets and still leaked bad.Im still running stock heads and these covers dont have the lip the factory cover do.I called customer service 3 times and each prerson i talked to said they sale alot of these and they should seal fine,I also wrote in my last review that the bolts provided with covers were a 1/4 too long so i had to bujy new hardware.These covers might fit good with aftermarket heads bjut not stock heads!As far as finish they look great and look good under the hood as well.I buhy everything through late model and they have always taking care of me hope they do on these.

Wife bought me these for christmas and i just got around to installing today.The bolts that come with the valve covers are too long and bottom out before tight with the stock heads had to purchase new ones and the fitment onto the stock head wasnt that great either,Valve cover gasket sticks out past the covers a little less than 1/4 inch so i am worried they might not seal good.Cover finish was nice and looked well built might fit better with aftermarket heads.
