Arrow 323 Valve Cover

I searched a little but no answer really. Is there a signifigant difference between the 323 non-turbo cover vs. the turbo? Will either work on my miata? Any kind of signifigant modifications needed?

Thanks guys.

Non-turbo is SOHC... at least from what I remember.

You'll be reworking venting/pcv format. You'll also need to make your own little format for bracing factory coil packs if still running them.

So pretty much it has to be turbo to fit right?

If my memory is right and the 1.6l dohc is only in the gtx/gt turbo models... yes.

SOHC (single overhead cam) will not fit on a DOHC (dual overhead cam) head....

I'll have one for sale in a bit, once I get unlazy and actually pick which I'm selling and snap pictures. Will need to be painted.
