Trick flow valve covers

What are y'alls thought on the 2v valve covers? My stockers has a crack so I plan to just go ahead and replace them.

Make sure you order the right bolt covers tho, 11 bolt is a Romeo block 13 is Windsor

I had them on the 98. They're valve covers... not sure what else there is to say about them. Will not be getting them for the 2000 because the stockers work just fine.

I've read on other forums people had problem with them leaking. Plus my stocker is cracked. Might as well go with new covers. None of the junk yards in my area has 4.6 covers.

Had that 98 for 3 years, never one oil leak. They were installed with new hardware and new gaskets.

Sounds good. Ordered the silver coated covers. Waiting for the head to come back from the machine shop and should be good to go. I have all new fel pro gaskets.

Just got my valve covers in and I was going through the instructions and ended with this.


"Due to the location of the PCV valve and the oiling system in the 4.6L heads, oil is consumed and discharged through the PCV valve. The factory system vents these vapors and residual oil back into the intake and may lead to detonation and oil deposits in the intake track and on the valves. This problem is inherent to a stock 4.6L engine, but can be made worse depending on the modifications made to the stock engine, including the installation of these valve covers. TrickFlow highly recommends running an air-oil separator or catch can between the PCV valve and the vacuum source to help eliminate this issue."

Do I need a catch can? I only have a few bolt ons.
