A few months back I saw one on eBay for the GA16. I am kicking myself for not bidding on it. I have scoured the web and cant find anything. Some one made them. It was cast and polished. Work like that would not be for a one off piece. Does anyone have information on the topic? That cheesy plastic has got to go.

Thanks

How important is the plastic cover inside the valve cover? I'm trying to change the valve stem seals. I would go and pick up the entire cover, but I don't have a ride.

I had to chip away the old seal, but I can't get the new seal in with that inside cover in the way. That cover absolutely has to stay, right?

Well, I chipped away some of the plastic cover around the plug holes so I can get the new seals in. I doubt that it's going to work, but I'm going try anyway. I'll probably end up going to the junkyard to get another one.

I am the one who was selling the polished one on ebay, if you have the tools and equipment you can do it with a b13 valve cover, or if you are still interested pm me and make an offer and I will see about getting another one made for you.

akexnads, no need. I went and picked one up from the junk yard, and we're getting rid of the car today. Turns out we're getting and SUV and the father-in-law is getting the headache.......yes!

I was always working on that freaking car. I'm keeping my Nissan though.
