Do you think I should cut my valve cover, and which type of cut should I make? Its a B16A2 with skunk 2 cam gears, and a Tenzo R Valve Cover.

Well, if you bought them for anything other than to just say you have them, yes, unless you want to take you valvecover off evertime you need to tune them.

more places are now cutting holes that are slightly larger than the cam gears themselves, this prevents most things from getting inside the timing belt area, which is good.

if your poor/cheap, just hack off that side of the VC

not half moon, full circle, so technically it's a half moon cut on the VC and also one on the plastic timing belt cover.

buy a cheap shitty valve cover.. cut that one so you can tune them , then put your valve cover back on once they are tuned.. unless you want to be the guy who is like "hey look at my adjustable cam gears!!"

i had a black one, im not too sure what happened to it lol......
u should put a black one one the type r. then when people want to race you show em and be like its a b16.
i think im gonna get a black one for tuning, and maybe the winter too, when the salt kicks up it gets on top of the engine and leaves white spots, and its a pain to get off, plus I do most of my work in the winter, so im always scared to scratch it up. the tenzo r finish is pretty durable.
