GTE vvti valve cover on GE head?

I was wondering if it was possible to run the vvti GTE valve cover on the vvti GE head? I could only find one other thread so I wanted to get multiple sources before I looked into buying it. I'm running a FF intake manifold as well so I'm trying to pretty up the engine bay.

Awesome, now can I directly swap the valve covers or do I have to change the coil pack as well? Different gaskets?

I wanna say the gasket is different. You will have one spot on the new cover that won't get screwed down but it should be fine. Some ppl will weld a spot to bolt it down but


I did not

Hmmm this is very interesting. What you do about the pcv hoses? just connect them how the GTE would connect them?
