It’s somewhat by accident that I ‘dressed up’ my engine. I was really just trying to fit my AC compressor and solve the vent problem with my valve covers. However I found a kit, and a set of valve covers that worked perfectly for my application.
In this video I go over the installation of that kit as well as the valve covers.
