New valve covers

Valve covers arrived today for my motor build. Billet fabrication set them up with valve spring oilers, and a port for a evac pump. Wow who! getting closer.

Re: New valve covers

I like the oilers to keep the valve springs cool. Don't forget to add a motor oil cooler somewhere on the car (it can be under the car out of sight with it's own small electric fan to prevent adding any heat to the ambient air flow entering the radiator). I use three inch by 16 inch long oil coolers bolted to the out side of the sub frame with fabric covered high pressure hydraulic line to plumb into the factory oil cooler ports found on all four bolt main blocks.

These are more expensive that the ones I bought but I found them on a Porsche site so the name costs something.

This site offers a lot of options that will work but neglects details such as price and availability.
