        The CF valve cover weighs 1.1 kg (still too heavy for my taste).

                Hi John,
                Have you looked into coil on plug mounting with that CF valve cover design? Seems that it would be easier to modify its mold vs. the cut down S38 cover that some have done.
                thanks

                  we could make a COP valve cover. Id still probably prefer something along the s38 design.
                  e.g. valve cover to accept cops and then a top cover. all in CF. can also see about putting
                  the oil breather in the rear to keep hose routing stock.

                  BUT---the valve cover in CF is not to be underestimated. it isnt as easy as it seems.
                  has to be sturdy, vibration and heat resistant. with the oil passages too.
                  on the stock s14 CF cover we did that, its reeinforced has the oil passage, etc.

                  for a few one-off S38 based COP valve covers it might not be cheap enough that people want
                  one.

                  also have CF oil pans. thats the latest. being tested on a race car as we speak.
