They bolt up to the custom plate down the center of the valve cover because all the cool kids run COPs.

Thank Paul. zoomzoom guy just trying to crap in my thread. Poorly played though, as usual. Had he read the first post of the F/S ad....

This puts the PCV valve in a different spot and the breather in a different spot too. You'll have to run new hoses. Also this valve cover has no provisions to bolt the stock coil pack to. If you have COPs, this won't matter. If you don't, just run 1 bolt to hold the coil pack or fab up a new bracket if you're worried about it. I went ahead and polished the raised lettering so if you decide to paint it up you'll have one less thing to do. 60 shipped to US buyers.
But thanks for the bump zoomzoom.

there is a hole on the back that is the same on the Miata cover as well as the Protoge, you still use the bottom hole that's on the head and if you really feel that all 3 are needed, you can make a 90* bracket.... like this (damn, i did this **** like 6 yrs ago)
