you would have to get someone to do them custom, and it would be expensive.

I don't know if i would pay 450 for those, I think i may experiment and get with my uncle who is a custom fabricator and see if we can make some custom valve covers for mine.

if you go that route try contacting the guy that made the ones in the picture above to get some specs/input. He might have some things to tell you that would help avoid some blunders.
