I'm looking to dress up the engine in my 2000 Xtreme and want to start with valve covers. Any suggestions and recommendations?

You only have one valve cover, and other than powder coat or polishing there's not much else you can do with it.

I started smoothing and polishing one, but ended up powder coating a different one instead. It's kind of labor intensive to make it look good.

depending on what youre doing, paint can do wonders for parts and pieces. I stripped, painted and smoothed and flaked the frame rails and many other parts on the front of this truck. This famous truck has won many events, been featured in many magazines, and there is alist of things i cant even recall..

MBP, will this fit my 2.2L with no issues? Nothing I hate more than starting to work on something and running into roadblock, like it don't fit!

I don't see why it wouldn't, it's a genuine GM part and any 98+ valve cover has the same hole pattern and the tapped holes in the same locations.
