Default Clear Valve covers

I was thinking the other day it'd be cool to have transparent valve covers.

after some googleing I found a place that makes them but they haven't made them for our engine yet. (4.6 3v)

I e-mailed them with some questions and it sounds good, though to get them to make them now It'd take the cost of 20 ($5000)

Now I think it'd be really cool but whoa $5k, so i was thinking if there was enough interest maybe several of us could work together to get some made.

Ummm. What?
Wouldn't the oil just make it hard to see. Also heat turn them opaque and be useless.

Don't know about you but I think it'd be really cool to be able to pop the hood and see the cams spin.

but $5k, um yo 19 other people you out there?

That would be really neat...not $5k neat. Maybe if they were the price of other valve covers.

If I'm correct those are all pushrod motor covers? Do those have as much oil flow around the heads as our cars?

I imagine with the amount of oil the cams require it would fling it all over the covers and just coat the covers.
That's why our covers have baffles on the inside to prevent excess oil from being in the air and then dripping back onto the cam and causing drag. Same as the ones in the the oil pan

well, $5k/20 = $250, that's not too bad for a set of really unique valve covers.

Well I'd be interested in finding out how well they can do it

the person I e-mailed said they can make them for any engine, and that they plan to make them for all engines but we're likely pretty far down the list.
