Anyone ever try these:
Been looking around and can't, for the life of me, see why the stupid valve cover gasket kits list between $65-$100.
I bought the Fel-Pro set when I opened the motor last time, went to remove the valve covers this time and cracked the gasket...broke it right in half...only has 18,000 miles on it.
Anyway, for $14, I'm game...any thoughts?

I mean it is a good price. Looks like it is going for $75 on ebay...
However, I could not find any reviews on the product. For me, if I am buying online, I like reviews first. Plus, you cannot take it to a store to return them if they fail within those 2 years. But 14 dollars isn't much.
However, it does say "Ships within 1 to 2 months" so I am guessing they are made over seas and currently not in stock. Can you wait that long?

Got the gaskets a few days ago....look and feel like they should and I think they'll work just fine; ESPECIALLY for $14...

Not to hijack, Chris, but the various seals have some radical price differences from different suppliers - the Dorman intake manifold plenum and 8 seals is $15 - total - from Rock Auto. GM dealership gets $40-something for the plenum and about $7 EACH (2002 price) for the intake manifold seals.

You better shop around ........."

After re-reading your post, I think you may have meant it as a "for instance" scenario, but never wrote it up like that...articulation is key, lol

F'r instance - at's OK, cuz I can't wread writin' if it's wrote wrotten, either.
(Yes, the seals and gaskets have radical price differences - it pays to shop around)
