When I was looking for valve covers I found that a lot of them don't have enough holes. I needed one on the passenger side for the PCV valve, one on the other side for the vent (or visa versa), and one for filling with oil. Then, how much work is it to connect them to where they need to go.

Those are actually pretty nice looking covers. Wonder if they will clear the AC compressor and all the lines,and the stuff that's behind the alternator on a Vortec? That's why I like the Corvette ones; they clear all the factory stuff.

I'd love to find a set of Vette magnesium covers for when I swap LT1 into mom's C10 haha

Same - I'm working on my engine bay over the winter and the stock covers on my 91 TBI 350 aren't cleaning up well.
The ones I like say Chevy or sniper instead of GMC or don't have enough holes like you mentioned.
Being a rather expensive cosmetic upgrade has me really on the fence.
Perhaps I'm just cheap or being to picky!

Below is my engine bay as of now...

Not sure I plan to delete AC(not even have a delete idler pulley) and use the vortec style alt bracket, my truck was TBI

I think they just use breather caps , you can remove them and add oil
