      I'm not using them since I'm not a fan of the fab style valve cover. I do like solid billet valve covers though since you can have them made just the way you want them. That is what I did for my Duster project.

          Not knocking his valve covers, he is calling his bent and welded covers billet, I notice it a lot lately from different companies. Do people not realize that's not what billet means, didn't this used to be called fabricated? Is it just a fancy word to throw around to get more buyers, like tactical?

            If you read closely, they describe what`s billet and sheetmetal.

            Yeah I think Jeff's stuff is a sheet metal valve cover with a billet rail although I'm not even sure I'd call the rail billet. It is probably laser cut bar stock. I did true billet valve covers for a while but they are super expensive to make. The vendor who I was talking to about production builds went out of business so that killed the deal. If you have a Chevy engine you can buy billet valve covers from Summit but nobody that I'm aware of makes them for Mopar engines. I do have the CAD files to make them but I don't think the market is big enough to justify the investment.

                  I talked to Ron. they are $575 for the pair, black anodized, breathers are $70 and caps are $30. Engraving is free. Depending on how may we get we can get a discount.

                  If people want some i'll get a set too.

                  Let me know

                  He has one set that says Roadrunner on them ready to go (he has a Roadrunner). He is going to make a bunch of sets in the next few weeks. I'll ask about small block ones. Oh also if we buy a few sets he will give us a discount, $50 I think he said.

                  Thanks

                    that would be great. If he can keep them bare no anodizing to keep costs down I’m good with that. I prefer raw aluminum anyway.

                    Yes he is making small block ones, probably in a few weeks. You would be one of one of the first people with them.

                    How can I contact them? They won't answer their phone or emails.

                    All I get is ring ring ring and a answering machine that says leave a message which I do. Nobody is returning calls.
