I need to know if a mazdaspeed6 valve cover would fiit on my 2006 mazda3 i-model 2.0L? I wanna know cuz there is one for sale on ebay and I definately want to pick it up if it will fit? Not sure if there will be any power gains, but I'm not really looking for performance out of it but more to get rid of that black hard plastic looking one for one that looks a lil nicer. In my lack of knowledge with valve cover replacement, it looks like it would fit but, dunno.soooo, can anybody with some knowledge with this issue let me know if it would fit and if it does what I might encounter from the swap pros/cons? thanks. kevin

YOU pretty much got it all backwards dude. I want it for the looks not power, you read it wrong. I said I said I didn't want it for power. and I said the 3i is the plastic one and the MS6 is aluminum which looks so much better and thats why I want it to get rid of the plastic one.

actually, said to say it won't. :wtc: I went to the dealer today and talked to the mechs and they said its bigger because of the bigger head, BUT the block is the same, SOOOOOOOO what about buying the valve cover and head from him. bigger head= bigger gain? maybe? anyone?
