    Does anyone run these fabricated valve covers on their magnum engine? Long story short, I bought a set of fabricated LA valve covers because the breather holes and baffles are already there opposed to the fabricated magnum ones. Well the LA ones hit the alternator (factory serpentine setup) therefore the bolt holes dont line up. Has anyone successfully run these valve covers with factory serpentine set up?

      Which one? Can you post a picture of the area where it rubs?
      I assume you are talking about the LA style that does not have a visible flange and uses long bolts?

      I noticed that the Magnum ones have a "cut out" right where the interference is but no breather holes or baffles.
