Does anyone know if I can run tall valvecovers with a typhoon intake without a spacer? I know it's the cheap china made edelbrock look alike!lol not made of money

I think you pretty much have to run a spacer with tall valve covers no matter what (unless of course your intake doesn't hang over the heads). Keep in mind if you have a stock hood and throw a spacer on there, you might need a taller hood (or hole in your current hood ;) ) to fit the new height.

probably, but that's not your biggest concern, it's hitting the alternator with tall valve covers

My trickflows needed a 1" spacer they are now gone in favour of polished ford racing . I used to run the same manifold , I suggest cleaning up the ports the time spent will be beneficial mine was rough on the inside , mine came with a motor I bought
