Any of you using the open lettered aluminum valve covers? Where is the best price?
I want to shelve my tin chrome ones and get a set of tall (to clear the roller rockers) COBRA POWERED BY FORD alum covers...
I have have a set from Branda. These are great valve covers. They barely clear my Crane gold rockers on AFR 205 heads. I use the thicker injection molded steel core gaskets for a little extra clearance.
Bought my tall Cobra covers from Jim Cowles at Shelby Parts in Wisconsin. Great guy to deal with. Price was good. They clear speedpro roller rockers and are roughly 3/4 inch taller than the standard Cobra valve cover. I also bought the matching oval cobra air cleaner.

Give him a shout and see what his price is.
IIRC he was cheaper than Branda.......
