Default Our Supercharged Fabricated Valve Covers are finally done!

Well...it has taken us a bit longer than originally anticipated for the design work to be completed on our billet rail hand fabricated L67 supercharged valve covers, but we've got them finished up, test fitted and we're ready to accept pre-orders for 4/21/06 shipping. They can be ordered in pairs, as well as singles (for those not wanting to install a rear cover) on our web site:
http://www.rdperformanceproducts.com

We'll be providing more detailed pictures of the final product very soon. In the meantime, if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to let us know.

Valve Cover Features:

* Hand fabricated 6061T6 & billet aluminum construction
* Stock Valve Cover Height
* Stainless steel hardware kit included
* 2 diameter oil fill tube with anodized aluminum cap
* Greatly improved mounting bolt access over stock covers
* Natural aluminum finish
* 100% Hand crafted in the U.*.A.
* 1 Year warranty against manufacturer defects


















**Please note that there has been a very minor modification to the final design of the cover pictured above for coil & alternator bracket clearance purposes (nicely designed and unseen once installed). We'll be updating pictures next week**

WOW! Beautiflul! Who did those welds, they are amazing. Were they done by a machine or by hand....because if it is the latter then just wow.

Our valve covers are all hand welded. Thanks for the compliment

We actually put the polished single covers online this afternoon. They are available on the website for pre-ordering.

The little clips were not incorporated into our design but the plug wire holder can still be used. It tucks into the same space, but does not have the clips.

Why are you calling these 'supercharged'? They'll fit other applications as well.

The factory wire retainer will NOT work right this way. And I wouldn't trust your suggestion with the risk of it coming loose and getting into the fans. I'd go with aftermarket retainers like I did on my SSEi and nothing else.

Hoo, you need to PM an Admin to become a Vendor on this site.
