    I'm actually a bit suprised that the rockers don't hit those valve covers. Normally you need to run 'tall' valve covers with roller rockers.

    thanks......the valve covers needed a little paint so i re painted them black, and they looked plain stock so i pinstriped them to make them different....and the heads i got the aluminium heat paint to give them that look of a hot rod.....plus everything under the hood is black and silver....the bolts are black on the silver parts and silver on black parts

    yeah we left one valve cover loose to make sure they didn't hit...crane designed them to work on a completely stock motor so they are all good

    now it's time to take her back to the track:D

    took her back to the track.......i ran 3mph faster and only .1 faster in the 1/4....not bad for just some RRs....i was told that 3mph faster in the 1/4 is about 20-30hp gain
