So what other COPs are out there?

The Toyota COPs are too thick for the 2001 valve cover without mods. I'd rather use something that's more PnP.

Check out 99+ Isuzu Trooper COPs. My dad has one. I changed the plugs in it, and I remember it having a skinnier long part, that would fit in no problem. Not sure of what they look like on top though. Google it and see if that gives you any pics. But I can find those at the local yards easy.

Junkyard ones would be much cheaper than aftermarket ones.

Factory boosted motors would probably use strong coils. Eclipse, EVO, WRX, etc ?

Thick? Head height? There are a bunch of toyota cops that are interchangeable and have varying head thickness. I just sold this set to urbansoot and they're shorter than some of the others listed in the faq. Those came off a v6 previa.
