Watching Valves Dancing On This Freakishly Fierce-Looking Chevy V-8 Hot Rod! Mechanical Awesomeness In Action!

Yeah, it is possible, these transparent valve covers will provide you with that pleasure and you will enjoy in the view like never before.

Many of you (sorry, we don’t want to underestimate someone) don’t know what is going inside your engine. Someone, curious like many of you wanted to know what exactly is happening inside but was prevented from the safety valve covers.

And you don’t need to wonder anymore, because someone invented clear valve covers, so you can see how the valves are moving when the engine is turned on.

In our case (on the video) the clear valve covers are installed on small block Chevy engine and the view is just awesome. But in just a couple of minutes you can see shreds of oil on the valves. That’s because when the engine is on, the valves use oil and after 300-400 miles (that’s our estimation) the clear view would be ruined.

Imagine that the covers on all cars are like these and need to be regularly cleaned, damn, it would be pain in the ass. But for a demo they are just fine.

Watch the video to see how does it look like and share with us where would you use them?

    Why not use a super hydrophobic coating on the inside?
