4.6L valve covers

Recommended Posts

valvecover_46.jpg

 

Here's a photo of one of the 4.6L valve covers - we hope you like it.

 

The actual text is engraved into the metal - the detail of the etching is ultra-super sharp. It's the cleanest detail that I've seen.

 

We know that some of you want something Shelby GT specific too. We'd like some feedback on what design you'd like to see:

 

1. Shelby GT (simple text)

 

2. Shelby GT (side stripe from the fender)

 

We will also offer a full race version. What would you like to see on this?

 

These will be made in the U.S.

 

Thanks for being patient with us on these.

Hot Damn! Looks fantastic Robert!

 

I personnally like the idea of the side stripe, but I'm a little lost on what you mean by 'full race version'.

Personally?

 

Not in any particular order...

 

1. "Powered by Shelby".

2. "Shelby" on top and "Powered by Ford" below it.

3. "Shelby GT" on top, and "Powered by Ford" below it.

IMO of course.

Guess I'm boring...I like the one pictured. Send an invoice / count me in.

^I like Enis' #3 idea a lot. CSM option would be sweet, but pricey I'm sure.

I'm very eager to see what the race version looks like. I assume this will be a newly constructed cam cover, as opposed to using an OEM cover (plus powdercoat and etching) like the one pictured above. Other 'off-road' or 'race' cam covers I've seen seem to lack the internal baffling and PCV valve that the OEM covers have. Will the Shelby version be the same?

Regardless, I'd like for the etching to cover more of the cam cover personally. And I'd really like to see a newly designed (less awkwardly shaped) cam cover similar to the Moroso aluminum cover but with a big Shelby stamp on it. Thanks for the sneak peek Robert.

#3 would be my first choice out of these.

 

I am in either way. That looks hot! spice it up with Shelby GT double hot!

 

Got the card ready let's go.

Agreed about the logo being a bit bigger maybe, and I like the CSM# addition a LOT.

 

I'd like to see what you mean about the options for the SGT specific design AND i'd like to see the race version as well... hard to give opinions based just on what you wrote.

Should be a liitle larger. Maybe the snake on either end added. CSM numbers where the American, Inc is located. Just some thoughts. Looking good.

Looks good Robert. I think the logo should be larger also and csm# would be a nice touch. Any other colors?

 

Oh yeah, thanks for taking care of the name change for me. :salute:

I was hoping for more than a slightly modified stock cover, but I would prefer these over the one's currently available from Ford Racing. A big question is, what will these cost?

 

Also, I'm very curious to understand what the racing version might be. I'm assuming it would at least have cooling fins or similar?

Please keep it simple, make the logo in the prototype as large as possible, no CSM number (its already on the car in 4 places on the 08's), and whatever it takes to keep the cost DOWN! Please don't make these customizable, we don't need anymore 'gold plated' parts...... :redcard:

As it was said before simple is better, I know many of us went with the faux BERG Shelby emblem , might be nice to see that on a set as well the ones that are shown in the picture......just my opinon. Thanks for asking....and thanks for doing this!!!

they need to say Shelby GT or have my csm number.....otherwise I'll continue to pursue a set elsewhere...

 

someone sent me a pic of these a while back I forget who....

I think they were photoshopped!

 

Definately looks better with the Shelby larger than Roberts sample.....IMO......

Great picture, here are some things that could be offered for the GT-H people

 

 

1)engraving in gold rather than silver

2)CSM number for everyone

3)instructions on how to retain the engine security change feature when changing these out

 

 

Other then those things count me in!!!!!!

I'll check on some of these questions, but I can put some to rest now.

 

1. We won't use Cobra on these.

 

2. We also won't use powered by ford.

I like them....... I wish we could get them powder coated BLUE and have our csm# engraved into them.

These look great Robert! You lucky 4.6 owners! Wish they had something, anything, for the cheap plastic covers on us poor 4.0 Terlinguas....but, I understand the market is probably too small to make them...oh well, I can dream :hysterical:

I would like something like #4 as well, one berg snake is enough though IMO.... the one to the right could be eliminated maybe... DEFINITELY want the CSM # option which I know would be a huge pain in the ass for you guys to deal with probably, but very cool.

Number 2; charge those who want them customized with their CSM# more.

 

I'm sure SA wouldn't mind adding these to the catalog and offer them to ALL 3V owners just like in the good ol' days when folks bought them and slap them on their non Shelby 289's (which can still be done today). More volume = lower cost per unit.

 

Oh, and the title of this thread says '4.6L valve covers' not SGT valve covers.....

shelby + 4.6L = sgt

 

ok, cs8 too...

 

Agreed about it being fine to sell to anyone though, not a "special" factory part, so who cares about that. And I was assuming the CSM would cost extra too.

I also like the idea of powder coating them blue, then add a silver sripe over the top of them with

a Shelby Gt script on them also. Any word on the cost ?

Thanks , Don

Looks great robert...I know I'd be interested in a set of just what you pictured....but a Vista Blue powdercoated one would REALLY seal the deal.

I think they need to read Shelby Automobiles, Inc. not Shelby American, as everything else says Shelby Automobiles. ( ie: dash plate, supercharged plate, rad support tag)

Chris, excellent point. All 4.6L powered vehicles were built under the SAI banner, not SA.

 

I will inquire about other questions.

 

Thanks for all of the feedback! :)
