Valve Cover Options

I have an '88 Prelude Si and it has the 2.0 - B20a5 engine. I'm considering repainting the valve cover or replacing it with something new. Do I have to go with the original type valve cover that came on the car or is there different types of valve covers I can buy. Doesnt look like my original valve cover has any way to mount a spark plug cover. I'd like a nice custom look valve cover that I can use a spark plug cover with. Are there any other B series valve covers that will fit prefectly? Thanks! Bill

I think the b20b/b20z valve cover works, not 100% sure.


I say, polish the current valve cover down for a polished look...

I may just end up polishing my old one, but last summer I completely stripped and hand polished a set of Integra Fat 5 wheels and I made up my mind, I'd never polish anything by hand again. I may just get mine powdercoated although I'd like to be able to use a spark plug cover.
Thanks! Bill

You should take off all the paint and re-paint it black and polish the Honda logo. So that way it gives your engine a newer out of the factory look. Not like "check me out, I'm a (insert color here) engnine in a (different color here) car here!!

Realizing that you have the two bastard engines of the bunch and will spend hours upon hours and years upon years hearing people with dem fancy bigger engines and finishing your build then smoking there ass's - A big ass headache but still priceless....until you wreck it.

just repaint it, you could you a b20b vc ( a guy on another forum did so ) but in my opinion that are no vc choices that look better than the stock cover painted well. Make sure you prep it well before painting
