Re: Polished Alloy Rockers Covers

The Ford motorsport ones are around $400 roughly. Get the tall ones for use with roller rockers. You have ot cut the holes for the pcv etc.

Cheap and this type of cover aren't in the same sentence unfortunately unless secondhand.

Hey pracy

I have a set fitted to mine was actually the first thing i bought for my engine cause id wanted a set from the moment i first saw them, best looking rocker covers u can get, from memory they cost me 260-280 for the pair they only come in a few sizes for clevo, windsor, and big block heads dont think the height of the rocker matters cause im running 1.73 on mine as well. they all come with the baffle which along with the holes u have to do urself.

Is there a new style that doesnt need the long bolts? I got mine this time last year and imported the ARP 12 point SS 4.5" bolts to go with them. I was told not to buy the polished ones because they, er, need polishing too much! The chrome ones are better as you just need to wipe them over before a show. I think they were $200 US a set plus everything, they have the holes and fittings included. Mugs didnt tell me this but instead sold me an extra set of fittings.

Re: Polished Alloy Rockers Covers

The Ford Racing (not Ford Motorsport anymore) polished alloy covers go for $119 in the US.

From Summit Racing of Jegs, who will charge about US$45 for postage, you could get them landed here for about AU$220. But as mentioned, if you're paying much more than $300 here, you're getting ripped.

I blew a heater outlet cap last week and dumped several litres of coolant all over mine. Bugger, it's going to take some serious elbow grease to polish them back up.

These rocker covers really rock!
