Definately Black or cordinate with body ,or chasis color....They are awesome covers though. Are they available to the public?

Sorry I guess I should have read your original post completely . My question should be where did you buy the covers and would you be interested in cutting out letters for others.

PPC valve covers these ones are the R6145 i had a local company cut out the letters on his waterjet machine, he sponsored it and did it for free but he said it usually costs 50$ so its pretty expensive i just got the SKR powdercoated waiting on the racing to be done then ill post pics there getting painted :)

All the more reason to highlight his business and help to generate some revenue for him. Do the right thing.....Kawasaki Green.....

KMJ Performance sells a similar valve cover I am using on my 327, and they're really nice quality for a very cheap price. And yes, they are a baffled inlet too! I like them because the mounting holes are sleeved so they use a long allen head screw, and not cut out around the mounting screw. $59, with free shipping too!
