Default Custom Valve Covers

Can custom valve covers be made and if so is there a size limit that they can be made at? I dont mean smaller I mean like maybe a bit taller and more square to make the engine look beefier. I think that would be pretty cool as long as it isnt too expensive.

I think that is a little off. I'd say the range is from $100-$400 depending on where you go and what you have done. I'm looking at making them out of aluminum and have them tig welded. I could get you a set of aluminum ones right now for $300. I know that the aluminum ones off the Intense drag car were floating around ClubGP for awile for like $100-$150. I've been looking into a set of these ever since I found out that you need a valve cover spacer to get roller rockers to work.

Yep, I just don't like the Idea of having it tho. + with my new setup I'm going to prob. have some type of PVC system intergrated into the front and back valve cover. So for less then $100 in materials I'll kill 2 birds with one stone.
