Message Includes 16 stainless steel studs with integral spacer, flange nuts, and flat washers for both intake valve covers on one VG30DE(TT) engine.

Price: $95.00 + shipping. Email if you want to order a set. Limited availability and only available direct from BDE.

Eliminates the pesky OE rubber washers by spacing the valve covers off of the cylinder head's gasket surfaces which prevents over-crushing the gasket. Eliminating the OE rubber washer under the bolt head allows each fastener to be tightened rigidly so they won't loosen like OE bolts can when the rubber washers harden and shrink.

This concept has been tested on BDE's shop Z since 2012 with zero leaks and zero loose fasteners. We originally used separate spacers with bolts, but the spacers were difficult to keep in place during valve cover installation and removal, so we integrated the spacer onto a stud and made the system user-friendly... enjoy.

* Must use new valve cover gaskets for first assembly.
