You just need to find a shop that will do Porting and Polishing. I plan to have my lots of my engine Ported and Polished as soon as I can find a shop to do it in Denver.

We have chrome KA24DE valve covers in stock for exchange.  The hard part is the spacing between the lattering won't be perfect, but that's up to the plating shop how they do it.

We initially had this covered polished, and it didn't turn out as good as we want thought so we went ahead and had it chrome plated.

polishing is like $80 here in NJ at a local shop, but from what i hear they stain very easy and you would be better off plating it or high temp paint ( i wouldent suggest paint ) or you can do it your self but it wont be as high polish.  Go to local hardwars store and buy a cotton wheel and buffing compuond, you will probely want to remove the cover fo this as it is messy

mine was chromed, it cost me 250 canadian, It still shine after a year. I parked my car for the winter, so I will redo all my intercooler piping with polish aluminum, also the intake manifold is going through some port and polish then I will have it chrome also. can't wait to see if power will improve at all.
