valve covers

SMALL-BLOCK VALVE COVER

To make sure your GM engine looks as great as it runs, Chevrolet Performance offers a wide selection of precision-engineered, branded valve covers in either aluminum or stamped steel. Designed to seal tightly, these valve covers minimize the chance of oil leakage, with taller competition covers available that are made to easily clear high-performance valvetrain components.

NOTE: Valve covers are sold in pairs unless otherwise specified. Valve covers cannot be used with 15˚ or 18˚ heads unless otherwise stated.
