There's an aluminum one pictured on one of the rally cars in a book I
have, but apparently it's made of 'unobtainium' as I've been unable to
locate any. The fiche doesn't show any at all. Those stock valve covers
are hideous, aren't they? You'd never see anything like that on an
Italian car, but then ours don't leak oil as much :)
