      As good as that looks, I still cant see how its going to clear a non-hacked valve cover. Every picture shows it resting on a shortened cover.
      The shortened cover pictured will be welded up, it has been chopped above the cam, and has room for the oil splash tray.

      A lot coming from me? Why? I'm just another enthusiast! My name's Colm, feel free to use it.

      The TT big valve kit really isn't going to do anything unless you have substantial headwork. I usually go with this combo: stock intake and +0.5 exhaust. Since you're going to be running boost, consider going with 1mm oversized on intake and 1.5mm on exhaust, IF you're going to do some valve job or port the head. If not, just go with a 0.5mm bigger exhaust. Really, there won't be that big of a difference over stock..

      This is a really interesting project. At least when you open your hood you know that it will be unique. Good stuff

      Will have to pull the intake manifold if need be...

      On second thought, it should not be that bad, just need a small ratchet and a swivel.

      Yes manifold should appear "nestled" or sunken into the valve cover...
