I cant seem to find any tall valve covers with 3 bolt holes on intake side and 4 on exhaust. All I can find are the 4 bottom and 2 on top side, except for some ugly unfinished trick flows and not sure they would fit my head. I am running scorpion roller rockers and just need a little more height clearance. I even looked for spacers, not gonna pay 160$ for 3/4 inch spacers. All the fabbed ones on ebay or other sites only have 2 bolt holes intake side. I did find one nice looking pair of 7 bolt aluminums but they wanted 250$ for em. So if anyone has a link to a site or is sittin on a pair, stamped steel or aluminum fabbed, half decent looking for around the 75-125 range please let me know. Thanks for your time and god bless.

I like to fill tiny holes I guess, and why not use it?

I am just trying to utilize what is there I think that's a pretty long span to go without a bolt when the bolts that are there aren't much tighter than finger tight to begin with, also there is a hole there for it. Less chance of leakage maybe? why not put a hole for a bolt there?

The covers that only have two bolts on the intake side are so stiff, there's no need for a center bolt. They don't bend or leak at all.
