I got tired of looking at a messy (was still stock but worn) engine bay. I was ashamed to even pop my engine lid at car meets and events.
What did I do? Over the winter I had purchased used valve covers and had them powder coated, new valve cover gaskets, a Jimi Bracket (found here – https://mk1mr2.webs.com/ just scroll down a bit), and figured while I was there I would do the EGR delete as well (kit found here *made to order* – http://www.ksdengineering.com/KSDEngineering-EGR-Blockoff-Plate_p_59.html). I also gave everything else a bath to get rid of the dust/dirt.
I think the pictures speak for themselves. For anyone interested in the EGR delete please check out the last picture.
