I finally got around to going to the junk yard. I checked out some older 2.3L hatchbacks. I think 2004-2006 but they looked a little bit different. I ended up pulling a valve cover from a 2007 Mazda 3 i 2.0L. They looked pretty similar and it fits so I’ll see if I have any trouble with it. I did notice that my rpm dips a little every once in awhile. It usually happens when I have my ac on and puts the extra load on my motor but it happens all the time now even with regular heat to the floor. I’ll have to take my coil packs out and maybe clean them a bit as well as the tops of my spark plugs Incase oil got on them. Thanks for the help guys. I’ll try to post some pics of the valve covers. The top one is the new/old one and the bottom one with the blue gaskets is the old one.
