Valve covers

What do you guy's run for valve covers? I was thinking about some sheet metal covers. Who has them, and a good price for them?

I am running the Motorsport Ford Racing covers but will be going with the sheetmetal on the new motor. There is a guy on Ebay that sells them for $160.00 + $20 S/H. Heard they are pretty good. You can also call Carroll Carter @ C&C in Manassas, VA. He has a guy make 460 covers that are REALLY nice with a thick base (no leaks!) for like $300 or so. A friend of mine has them on his stroker.
