    501025 is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look Great! I was skeptical on how they would look and feel when purchased. I received these valve covers and I have to admit, they’re really nice looking and they feel very strong and well built.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from They do not work on an L88 head. These covers do not fit an L88 head. They collide with the valve train. You will have to pay to return them so be aware of that.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Look great, poorly made. Not fully welded so they leak oil over the top of the flange at all of the 4 lower bolt holes, I had to fill the gaps with RTV to make the first race of the year without it looking like a mosquito fogger from the oil dripping on the headers. The flanges are arched to the point it is almost impossible to keep a gasket under the corners. I made it work for 1 full race season but after pulling the engine for winter maintenance the arch is even worse now and the gasket will not stay under the corners of the valve cover at all. They look great but I would suggest spending the extra money and buy a quality set. I've owned them for 10 months and they gave me problems from day 1. Did you first think to yourself, Wow these are cheap compared to an identical looking set from other companies" That was my first thought. Learn from my mistake and buy a quality set the first time. You get what you pay for. I own a few other Jegs brand products and have been very happy, But I would not suggest a set of their valve covers.
