I don’t get this and never have. I have a really nice set of Trick Flow heads and would like to get some sweet Trick Flow valve covers to complement the heads but none of their’s are baffled. I don’t get it, am I the only person using a PCV/breather? I currently have some generic Moroso covers on because that’s one of the few I can find that are baffled. Summit has some baffled ones but they’re mostly “Ford Racing” ones and that’s just too generic for my taste, I want something that shows the personality of the engine. So, what gives? Did PCV’s go out with mullets and parachute pants?

I recently purchased some tall Ford Motorsport licensed baffled valve covers from Summit to clear my TF rockers on 11-R heads. I think they look fine if "generic". Maybe try ebay for some welded type.

I ordered a set of billet fabricated covers from CVF for the SBC in my Iroc, they are baffled.

I specifically asked them in an email and they said all their covers were baffled. Always an option.

I too have a pair of tall "Ford Racing" valve covers on my heads, and the covers are baffled. I went with the FR ones because the "Cobra Powered by Ford" valve covers were too short, but they were also baffled.

Did you try the unbaffled covers? Mine are not baffled and I have had no issues with oil...
I have not. I’ve always been told that the PCV will suck oil like crazy if I don’t have it baffled.

I had an issue on my sbc ( I know, not the same) the previous owners had installed a high volume oil pump and after a while the oil would slosh and get sprayed up to the breather and work its way out to coat my valve covers.

That's why I went with baffled covers. No other changes and now i dont have oil dripping off the covers after driving.

Yeah, that’s what I’m afraid of. I thought about getting a nice set of aluminum valve covers and welding my own baffles on but I don’t have a TIG welder. :(

Maybe get an air/oil separator? I got one for $25, works well. My valve covers are not baffled, and I do pull a little oil, but I can just dump that back in. Just a thought.

How about using an epoxy rated for 300+ degrees?
