If there is a part of the engine that is as equally important as the engine itself, it would have to be the valve covers. Easily one of the first areas your eyes are drawn to when looking at an engine, the valve covers can tell you so much about the engine. They can tell you whether the engine is a big block or small block and in certain applications the size. Although that may not be the case with most aluminum valve covers, they should still have an eye catching style to them.
