    Yes, I like the Ford racing blue covers but wouldn’t pay their price so picked this from my powdercoater and was very happy with the outcome

    To pull valve covers in the car you need to remove the 2 motor mount bolts that go up though the crossmember. Then jack up the side you're working on about 2". Then valve covers will clear everything.
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard

    Awesome, thank you for all the replies. At this point I think I am going to go subtle, not too loud and go Graphite Charcoal and also on the brake calipers. Gotta find brake caliper paint same color though.

    I’ve done it without, but it certainly opens more space.

    After the catch can install. The covers are still red... poor lighting is causing the orange.
