    Valve cover swap ?

    Has anyone put an aluminium speed3 valve cover on the N/A 2.3 engine to replace the plastic valve cover ?

    Curious if they are interchangeable ?

    Thanks

    Second thread to get more attention. I am impatient and want answers. Lol
    The valve cover will not be an exact fit but I plan to make it fit when I have the time.
