Cam Research is pretty proud of that judging by the price. I get it, CNC work is expensive I just don’t think I could justify the cost personally. Maybe on an open engine street rod project 🤷🏻‍♂️
$480 for a billet aluminum timing cover is quite literally dirt cheap, let alone 2022 price increases (inflation), today's material cost for a sizable block of billet aluminum, the typically small production runs due to little interest in such a part, etc.

Hey Everyone,

...Im looking for a 429 / 460 Billet timing cover ( NOT a blower cover with the drive/fuel hole in the center )
If anyone knows somebody CNC-ing these let me know, not having much luck.

Thanks, Larry
Just as an FYI: our Quick Change Timing Cover may be purchased with the customer's choice of two cover plates:

1) the Cam Gear Cover Plate with a center hole indexed for the Enderle fuel pump, or,
2) the Cam Gear Cover Blank which is a blank cover (no center hole), around which one can mount a Mezziere or CSR water pump directly onto the timing cover (or even use a remote water pump)

I've attached a couple of pictures with Cover option #2.

The Quick Change TIming Cover in billet however, would approach 4 figues in price so most enthusiasts might be better off buying the $480 single-piece cover linked above if it is available.
