Comments about Spectre Valve Cover:

These are just dumb. Before I even left the store I realized the existing oil cap wouldn't be able to fit.

Then I realized that the PCV valve and CCV holes were way too big.

THEN I realized that all the holes were on the wrong side! You would have to install these covers either flipped 180 degrees or on the opposite sides from the originals or else the bolt holes wouldn't even line up. Of course then, you would have to buy new hoses to reroute the PCV and CCV lines from their new locations.

If you buy these, be prepared to buy:
New non-standard style oil cap
New oversized PCV grommet
New oversize CCV elbow
New hose for CCV-to-throttle body
New hose for PCV to crankcase

I wouldn't be surprised if the bolt holes were the wrong size/height as well, and you'd need to also get new bolts.

      Hi Bubba, glad to assist you! This Spectre Valve Cover (Part No. 5260) does not include the grommets. You will need purchase the grommets separately, the part numbers are Spectre Grommets 1 PCV/Breather (Part No. 5339) and Spectre Grommets 1PCV/1Breather (Part No. 5333). For more information, I would suggest that you contact the Spectre directly at 909-673-9800 and they would be in a better position to help you.
