Where online do they sell the cheapest Ford Racing valve covers for the 302's?

Looking for a pair, I live in Tampa,Fl and wish I could go to a muscle car parts store to buy this in person but there's none of that here, so looking for a cheap pair online to spruce up my engine looks.

Kmj performance has really nice fabricated aluminum covers. They are what I have. They aren't ford racing, but look really nice. I think I paid 70 through an eBay listing, but they have a website also.

Nice! Do those fit regular 302 heads?
I ask because the "original" Boss 302 used a Cleveland style head that may have a different bolt pattern.
Price?

That's a good price, they shouldn't be hard to sell.

If you can get a spacer for the intake you have and you have hood clearance for the upper intake manifold they will work.

Yeah I have a 3 1/2 inch cowl. Do these spacers Benefit any power or they just heighten the intake?

They also isolate the upper intake from the engine resulting in a slightly cooler air charge.
By extending the length of the intake runners they will also provide some low end torque benefits. So the answer to your question is yes, they do.

Not bad....Last week I had to build my own heater core tube (the one under the throttle)because the old one rusted out from inside and sprung a leak and it was a pain to even get the first one out w/ removing the whole intake and i thought "i wish there was a way to get this intake to sit higher for future work in this area.Ima check out a spacer as soon as my currently ordered parts get here. I'll ask you for if you still have the covers once I already have the spacer. I like the look of the taller valve covers.
