Vavle cover gaskets

So, looks like I need new valve cover gaskets. Dealer is around $500 a piece, and my mechanic said the good ones that he can get are $150 each. Something special with mine, there's a plug and some sort of injector sensor built into it. What are the good ones? What should I stay away from? Any of the site sponsors carry them for a decent price?


While he's in there, I'm also going to have him replace the o-rings on the hpop and turbo pedestal. Might as well, that much is apart. LOL

International has them for $27.50 your dealer is quoting the entire engine harness and your mechanic is ripping you off. I wouldn't let either one of them touch my truck!!

I'm thinking about doing it myself, as I also want to clean the air filter, do the ccv mod, and clean out my IC and tubing for it.
