They don't even look like they will bolt up. I would stick to that site for exterior mods, not engine stuff. It doesn't sound to reliable.

They do look nice, but didn't come up on my search there. I will again suggest, as a "make do until..." PlastiKote Duplicolor Bumper Chrome. Made the wheels on the wife'* van look pretty good..

I thought Pontiacs were american and not german. Well if they come up with a chrome valve cover with a pontiac emblem on it and the words SUPERCHARGED then I'll buy it. But I dont think for now that my engine is in the back trunk and no way in hell will I call my car Herbie!

Once again, I'll extend my offer. If someone sends me a front valve cover, (or a pair just to make sure), I'll create a 3D CAD file that any CNC machine shop in the world can use. After machining from Aluminum, you can powdercoat, anodize, or chrome plate. Whatever your preference is.

I can return the covers if you need them back.
