I'm in the market for some baffled aluminum valve covers.

Any recommendations? Or brands to stay away from?


Thanks:confused:

I had the chevy diecast alum 1's on my AFR's and had interferience problems with Roller Rockers. I had to take them off.

These are the 1's.

I think I'll try the fab 1's next time.
Those are the same ones I have. I had to use a die grinder to clearance them for the roller rockers and then had to modify the baffles to clear the stud girdle. I had a set of fabricated aluminum ones and had to sell them. They would not clear the firewall on the passenger side.

Did the fabs clear the rockers? I am assuming the firewall issue was with the 66?

Ya the fabs cleared the rockers fine and the stud girdle. And yes it is on a 66. I have wanted to try some different fabricated ones with the rail around the outside instead of inside of them, but don't have the money to experiment. LOL The ones I tried were Granatelli's. There was no outer rail. The bolts went through the valve covers.
