    Well I've got AFR 165s and Comp Pro Magnum 1.6RRs. I don't want to get aftermarket valve covers and I talked to the guy at AFR and he told me of a valve cover gasket that was double thick to use? But he didn't know the part number. How do I get the valve covers to clear? Help...

    Take the oil baffle out and grind all the supports out of the inside. Viola the will fit. I got stock valve covers on my AFR 185s. I can prob take pics of mine im taking them off to re adjust the valves.

    Just take the baffles out. Except mine had no baffles and were short as hell, They wouldnt even clear my 1.6rr's. I had to get some aftermarket ones.
