I will most likely be posting this info on Club GP tomorrow. Stay tuned.

This is something we've already been discussing and will most likely be the next product we design & market. If you (or someone) could provide us a picture showing the fuel rail mounting, we'll see what options we might have design-wise.

Yes, we've been looking into producing a billet fuel rail in the future but wanted to begin with the valve covers since the wheels were already in motion on that project. We recognize the desire for their availability and will see what we can do to fill that void. Also, with regard to valve cover spacers, we've seen conflicting info about the ability for roller rockers to clear stock valve covers without a spacer present. can anyone confirm or deny this? If they will not clear, how much added height is required? I see that a competitor is currently producing covers that are either 3 1/4" or 3 1/2" (I forget). While this is nice for clearance, I personally installed our valve covers on my 95 SE and can say from experience that you'd need to do some modifying (rear bracket) if they were much taller than 2 1/4".

Series 2 doesn't need valve cover spacers anymore. Series 1 def. needs valve cover spacers. The ones that you use to see for series 2'* were 1/2" thick so you 3/8" base should work out great. When it is time for the rail make sure to come in here b/c it can't follow the old rail.

The valve covers for the supercharged series I/II are currently being developed. We hope to get them out to the public in the very near future.

As for purchasing a single cover, that is not something that we currently have in the plans but I will discuss it with my partner.

The ones out right now should fit the Series 1 L67, Series 1 L27, Series 2 L36, and the Series 3 L26. The ones that are being developed are going to work for the Series 2 L67 and the Series 3 L32.

Absolutely! The appropriate stainless steel bolt kits are included with all of our valve covers (longer for the 1001/1101'* and shorter for the 1002/1102'*)
