Not everyone has the time to find, clean and refinish a valve cover and wont have issues paying for someone else's labor, looks good.

But the person who has the time could cast their own mold for $150. That's the difference

You may want to lower your price just a bit. I see yours is ready to go but almost 5 times the cost is not really justified. Although you may be able to suck someone in on CR.net but good luck either way.

1) I'm assuming you're blind, they look nothing alike (like comparing a car in a junkyard to a restored classic)
2) That one doesnt come with a gasket
3) If you look at a few posts above I'm accepting offers(not $20)
4) If this thig doesnt sell I couldn't give 2 *****, I'm just trying to help someone have a cool looking engine bay for work I did for a car I sold.
5) Not sure why you're posting here...thnking of slapping this on your 2jz?

They are the exact same valve covers one is painted nice and pretty one is stock and pealing, and who in their right mind trusts that the valve cover they just bought has a good valve cover. I was just trying to show you that the price is high. Also you know this would never fit my car and if it did I would have already gone to the junk yard bought one cleaned it and powder coated it for less than half that.
