Re: Chrome 4.3L Vortec Valve covers?

As far as just straight chrome vlave covers, then, yes, the gentleman before me already stated a few good places.....as far as aftermarket covers w/ the Vortec logo, no such item exists with the possible exception of a few one-off pieces somewhere.

There was a thread in the 4.3 section about an aussie website that was selling aluminum Vortec-specific valve covers, don't remember the thread name, but it wasn't that long ago, a little searching should dig it up.
