You can use some of the billet pulleys from a 5.0 billet pulley set, but no one makes something specific for the v6. They make chrome alternators. BBK makes aluminum valve covers but they're just machined looking. What I prefer to do is paint and powder coat things. I dont have any pics of my engine yet because I still need tog et the film developed but I'll post them as soon as I can.

Does anyone know if the 94 Mustang chrome valve covers will fit a same year T-bird?.....3.8liter non supercharged
Should if they are both 3.8, but, I would be concerned about the height.

thats what i was worried about.
Cruise to the manufacturers web site and see if they list demmensions on hieght, I am sure they do, or, check out corral.net and ask the v6's there the size of thier valve covers.

why would the height be any different? The bird and stang use the same intakes and same valvetrain. The 94 bird and 94 stang covers are the same.

I was just offering it out as a suggestion, I know some of the 5.0 valve covers are too high, so then you have fitment issues, unlike the stang guys, us 5.0 boys can't add a 1" pheolic spacer to get over higher valve covers;)

okay, well there's no diffference between 94 stang and 94 bird valve covers. And they do make phenolic spacers for the 5.0 don't they? Of course I bet that collides with the mn12 hood.
