A valve cover is a simple part that most of us are used to seeing under the hood, at least, on the motors without a plastic engine cover. But in fact, if you're into racing or tuning, you may need to upgrade it, just like some other engine components. There are several reasons for that. The first one is purely practical: some aftermarket valvetrain parts meant to boost engine performance are just too large for the factory cover. Another reason you might have faced is a somewhat compromised strength of the stock cover. It can be rather fragile or have other issues making the cover not really suitable for frequent removal. For instance, its mounting flange can be too weak to provide good sealing, especially under higher oil pressure.

Having robust construction and using other solutions to avoid leaks such as spreader bars or improved composite gaskets, racing valve covers provide much more reliable protection against oil seepage. Also, you may find it inconvenient to remove the factory cover and install it again every time you need to adjust or repair something in the motor. Racing competitions and various motorsport events imply higher loads on the heart of your vehicle, so restoring procedures can be more frequent than in mainstream cars. Racing valve covers and related components can turn out to be more convenient in this regard. For example, T-bolts allow for prompt taking off and installing the cover even without tools.

The last but not least reason for replacing the engine cover is its visual appeal. A polished, painted, or simply new, undamaged cover will look way better than the old and shabby one. Once you're going to install the new part, why not get something special, performance-oriented? An unsightly cover can easily spoil even such an impressive look of the underhood space with lots of chrome which you can see in magazines and tuning studios. Browse our online collection and adorn your engine bay with functional, reliable, and eye-catching parts.

I first saw this product being on Y. T. being installed on a VW by the humble mechanic and then researched how carbon is built up in the air intake system of cars. I ordered this product and when I received it I was impressed by the quality (it should be for the price, LOL). My VW EOS is a project car right now so have not gotten to install the oil can yet, and will give update when I get some miles with this product. P.S. I wish the drain at bottom of can had a valve and not a plug.
