It was only a matter of time. CAD technology makes it easier every day. I've had them designed in 3D ready for machining for well over a year, but the cost of machining was just too much.

I can't see paying even 250 for valve covers that add no performance whatsoever.

I'm sure some will go for it as a nice dress up item.

I'm more about power than flash though.

If we wanted alluminum Valve covers, Didn't all of the 3800 Firebirds have them in alluminum instead of the compositie valve covers we have?

Yes check on that, I think someone swapped to them as they were alluminum... I just can't remember who

What years? If we are talking about the 3800 Firebird than I'd guess from Mid 95 till the end of the F Body
