I always thought the canton ones looked nice, they state they fit under stock intakes

Default Valve covers

Rollers will not fit a stock cover unless you remove the oil fill baffle, but then that makes a whole other problem. Talls will not fit under a stock manifold unless you get an intake spacer kit to raise the plenum higher. plus most aftermarket covers have no provision for an ol fill you must make your own. Ford has a nice replacement cover for a 5.0 as does TFS and Canton.

its cake to get stock ones to clear RR's, I made my own baffle and it works fine.
