Kevin,

Just put spacers under your valve covers.

Are you coming to Infenion on Memorial day? We'd love to see you there.

The tall Ford Racing valvecovers do have shields in them... They will clear the girdles...

Hey Kevin,

What do you fish for? One of these seasons I will have to come up to your neck of the woods to fish for salmon and stripers during their run into the american river. I used to have a boat too, but sold it for a mustang . Still have a jetski though and just dewinterized that yesterday.

No buddy they are OFF for sure.

Yea those hot spots go fast.Thats one heck of an out broad you have.
