    Default Valve covers tall vs short.

    Just purchased a set of yellow Proform valve covers for my yellow Vette. The new covers are tall. Is there any problem with replacing my current valve covers with tall covers? Is there any benefit? Thanks.

    As long as they fit in your engine compartment you are fine. They are taller to fit some aftermarket rocker assemblies which are bigger/taller than OEM.

    No benefit except for looks if you have a stock valve train. But make sure the L/S valve cover don't interfere with the power brake booster.
