    Thinking about a birthday present for my little sister. My present thought is either a set of valve covers or roller rockers for her Mustang. Valve covers would probably be the cheaper way to go. Where should I look for these parts? How do I know what ones fit her car? She has a 93 Mustang with a 5.0. It has other than factory heads but no idea what exactly.

    Have you poped the valve covers? If it has aftermarket heads chances are it already has roller rockers. Before you go changing the rockers you need to know what cam is in it. If you change the ratio it may not work with the cam ,cause coil bind, or worse hit the piston. So be careful what you do in there. Stock 5.0 ratio is 1.6 to 1. They are a non adjustable pedistal type rocker.

    If you get valve covers get good aluiminum ones the stamped steel ones always seem to leak. Need to know what kind of rockers are in it for the right valve covers. Stock type wont fit most stud mount roller rockers. need tall covers.
    What kind of valve covers ar in it now?

    yeah I just asked her whether it does or not. She asked her boyfriend(one whos done most of the work on the car) and he has no idea :rolleyes: Stupid Ford guys. Whatever, valve covers are expensive and roller rockers are even more. I'll get her what I did last year, NOTHING. I just wanted to upgrade it a little since I love driving the thing :D
