Edelbrock Elite Series Valve Covers


ELITE II SERIES VALVE COVERS
Introducing the next generation of Elite Series accessories... Elite II. This new line of accessories features a design that is influenced by the original Elite Series originally released in 1985, but with a new modern take on this classic look. They're made from heavy-gauge, die-cast aluminum and are finished off with a show quality high luster polished finish. The raised fins are accented by a contrast gloss black finish between the fins for the definitive Elite Series look

Our tall profile valve covers are 2" taller than stock, and clear most roller rockers and valvetrain components. Our low profile valve covers clear all air-conditioning, alternator brackets and aluminum rockers. Overall height is measured from gasket flange to top at the highest point. Elite II Series Valve Covers are available in Polished Finish ONLY!

These heavy-gauge, die-cast aluminum valve covers come with a handsome, polished finish for a custom look. The raised fins are accented by a black matte background, then detailed with Allen hex heads that create a two-piece look from a one-piece construction. We have two styles, one with the Edelbrock name and one without. The "No Name" valve covers offer the distinctive look of the original Elite line, but with no Edelbrock name. Our Tall Profile Valve Covers will clear most roller rockers and valvetrain components. Our Low Profile valve covers clear all air-conditioning, alternator brackets and aluminum rockers. The number in parentheses is the dimension from the gasket flange edge to the top of the valve cover. Dimensions accurate within 1/8". Elite Series Valve Covers are Available in Polished Finish ONLY!
