Is your valve cover bad or do you just need one to powdercoat? I could send you one, but I would need to get one back within a reasonable time (maybe with a fresh coat of powder? )

That could be arranged, pending if I can fit it in my oven.

Mine isn't bad, just want to powdercoat one.

Same as here probably. Open the thread and edit it. The thread title should be available for change there

Yeah, it's the same, but most of the time the name won't actually change when you see it in the thread list. It only shows the changed name when viewing the thread.



I hate bfc. I post two threads with legitimate questions with good info, and get no helpful responses. But the guys that post a thread about dino oil vs sythetic or K&N filters get a million responses.

bf.c is pretty bad. Either your in, or you're a noob with no knowledge of anything.

Nope, not in the edit section. I did it before but can't remember.

CJ, I'll check measurements tomorrow to see if it'll fit.

Looks good from what I can see in those terrible pictures

And I'm always on the bfc classifieds. I check the engine section a couple times a day.

Weird. I think my car had a very similar issue at one point. Have you cleaned your ICV?

Might be worth a shot. It's not as bad as people make it out to be.

Like I said... It's not that bad. You just have to sacrifice the comfort of your hand for a little while.

Do the routine stuffs first Dino... sometimes the most mind-baffling problems are solved with the simplest solutions.
