    Default Rocker/Valve Covers for Buick V6

    Hey, does anyone know of any companies that make Rocker Covers/Valve Covers for the Buick V6 that are taller than stock? Something that wont need spacers for roller rockers. I have seen a few different styles from the United States, but I was wondering if someone here in Aus makes them?

    Heres some examples of what the States have for the Buick engines:
    These are all Billet Rail fabricated valve covers and are 2 1/4 inch tall, a 1/4 taller than stock which means you dont need spacers for roller rockers.

    Make a set yourself, get 2 sets of VN S1 Alloy rockers, and make them yourself

    2 sets & a Mig/Tig welder...... Cut the tops off one, then with the other cut the top off with some height, then Mig/Tig weld them together. Work's a treat.

    Here's a potentially dumb question, would ecotec rocker covers fit? They're basically the same engine aren't they, and I know they had roller rockers, in VT at least.

    Yeah, and I've heard that they can polish up a real treat if you can be bothered.

    I'm not sure, I'd go next door and hassle the neighbours to let me have a look at their VX, but they'd probably shoot me at this time of night. Hokay, a little bit of google bashing and i came up with these,




    Some interesting things, the rocker covers look damn near identical in shape and the ecotec covers look taller, but the oil filler is on the opposite side. Could be interesting. PS, sorry about the lousy image quality and angle, I'm just plain lazy ya see.
