    Nope won't fit, if you don't like the raised squares, get a 1999+ (I'm pretty sure its 99 and up, you can search) LS valve cover. Some people prefer them, I personally like the raised squares.

    LS or B20 Valve cover will fit--- otherwise order a aftermarket from somewhere like OBX-----

    The new look started in 96 actually, corresponds with the change to OBD2. The CR-V valve cover is the exact same thing.

    No, you can't do this, and why would you want to? That's like putting "Type R" and "VTEC" stickers on a stock Civic DX. If you want a different look, then go with the 96+ valve cover I mentioned above.

    OBX makes a nice valve cover available in black, silver, red or otherwise. It looks similar to the 96+ valve cover...smooooth. I bought one on ebay for about $100. Not a bad deal.

    The OBX one is allright I guess...

    The price on that other one though, is just ridiculous. Whoever polished it did a piss poor job. I don't understand why they skipped the center, it looks stupid like that. I paid $30 shipped for a stock LS valve cover shipped, in perfect shape. There's no way in hell I'd pay $90 for that polished one...

    I totally agree with you. That was just a quick search to give him a basic idea of what his options were.

    Thx guys. i like the laser cut look but i dont like the polish but if that is all i can find i will either get the polished and get some cam gears or i talked to someone on here about purchasing their GSR head and puting it on my ls block. if i do that then i know i will have more of a selection in valve covers.but while i have your attention, any suggestion on cam gears or does it really matter. i got my taxes back and i can afford it but i want whats good and looks good. i dont wanna get any cheap cam gears and they break but if noone has had any problems out of cheap ones then i will go that way. im paintin my car Burnt orange like the King Ranch F-250's. its hard trying to find a color to go with that under the hood. looks like blue looks the best.thx for the help.

    Say what? You're gonna paint your engine bay blue and the rest of the car Burnt orange? Is that what you're saying or are you planning to use blue "loom" to cover every wire, vaccuum line, and hose in your engine bay? :eek:
