I've been told by sunrise mitsubishi that a factory replacement is 165 and chrome or red is 265. is this any good?

Jeff at TurboTrix does powdercoating and will do your valve cover in just about any color or combination of colors. http://www.turbotrix.com

i just bought some engine block paint and painted mine, it looks like this: http://gsxr750.homestead.com/files/engine2.jpg

I'm sending mine to Hiperformance Coatings. www.hpcoatings.com. They have a variety of candy colors.
Its going to cost $140 bucks to paint it Ruby Red with white masking. And I'm also having my heat shield spray painted their polished aluminum color. I'll post pics when I get it back.
