I saw an ad for a Vtec valve cover, I want to get it since it's painted a nice red....Would that fit on my non vtec 1997 DX?

lol that dude is just saying that it won't fit so he can get rid of his valve cover. :thumbdown :thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown:thumbdown
right, because im the sheistiest OG member on here. get a life. The valve cover will work. I was thinking of the differences between the d15 covers and this one. Since the plugs are on the other side. Since the OP and I have communicated through AIM and PMs. Im gonna go out on a limb here and say that youre out of line. He and i communicated about the valve cover i have. Which I sand blasted yesterday, and primed it last night. Tonight i did the final coats of red. Im painting it per his request.

The D16Z6 valve cover he posted above does not have the proper mounting location for the throttle cable bracket.

If you would like to point fingers at me and make me look bad. Youve done a horrible job. Please remove your post and I will do mine as well.

he did a great job communicating with me and painting the cover. He is looking out for other people while also getting rid of some of his stuff.
Don't hate, appreciate!
