Stamped valve covers with the OEM style baffle won't fit properly due to interference in two places. The aforementioned exhaust valve spring's proximity to the valve cover rail.
In addition the baffle that would normally fit in between the valve springs in the stamped covers hits the springs.

We've used the BT cast covers with simple clearancing and drilling the bolt holes a tic larger. 1643 Felpro gasket.

The fabbed aluminum short valve covers work well as is with a 1643 felpro gasket.

Double check the areas of interference.
