Default SSEi Valve cover gaskets

Holy crap!! I've been pricing valve cover gaskets for my SSEi...Anywhere from $55 to $70 stinking bucks!! I was figuring on $10 to $15 bucks. You can get them that cheap for non supercharged cars but Holy cow they're expensive for the SSEi'*. Sorry just venting!! Heres to high prices

$26.99 Here, and IIRC Fel pro were cheaper than that at Advance Auto Parts, but I could be wrong.

There shouldn't be ANY difference between super and non-super. Only thing I can think of to make them different would be different heat ratings...maybe */c models have a higher temp rating or something? I doubt it, but one never knows.....

Get them with a set of rockers and you may get a reduced price.

Yes they are different. The SSEi gaskets have grommets with them that I guess attach to the valve cover??
