    HI Old Mustanger
    Im an Old Mustanger too and have finally embraced the new stuff ...

    I have an 09 GT with the 4.6 and wish to Powder Coat my valve covers as you. However my guy who will do the job pointed out somthing that I should double check on first...On the underside of the LH cover the PCV hose metal intake tube makes a 90 degree and enters the underside of the inner riveted plate. At the 90 degree turn, the tube is housed in a rubber grommet for support.
    The oven temperature that is used to bake the power coat is around 400 F - did this level of heat or does this level of heat melt or comprimise the integrity of the grommet?
