I was looking at a Trophy valve cover kit for my 2000 zx3 zetec but i just noticed that mine and from what i've seen yours are flat on the drivers side of the block and my plastic valve cover has 2 dips on the drivers side so i'm guessing it won't work? The contour covers i've seen now are all flat with no dips corresponding to the cams. Am I out of luck with the metal cover I have or is it ok and I can get the kit?

Thanks

Yes but I need a hardware kit I think. Noticed today the metal one I have is flat and no dips unlike my plastic one which has dips so I thought I'd ask them since I came across another members post who had the same issue and his metal one(same as mine) doesn't fit cause it leaves a gap where the dips are. Haven't pulled the plastic cover to double check since I figured asking is easier lol.

I like it, Should sand down the zetec so its shinny than the rust, glad your happy with it :). Id get a batter cover, maybe put the cover back on the header for time being, spark plug cover valley. etc

Lol I would but the header cover wasn't on the car when I bought it. And should I paint the battery box blue or no?
