This video shows an L98 TPI motor with the distributor cover appearing to be aluminum and with Fiero machined into it.
Where can a guy find one of those covers?

It appears to be a plate that is laser cut and glued over the red ribs of the cover.

That 88 Formula belongs to Alex you know him as Alex4mula on this forum. I made the distributor cover and gave it to him as a Christmas present. The aluminum distributor cover plate is made from all OEM parts and bolts on to the stock upper plenum as the normal distributor cover would. It fits flush with the upper plenum and the groves line up, it looks like it was put there by Pontiac. I have done TPI conversions and they all have it.








Here is one of Alex's build thread on that Formula.

Here is a different take of the engraved Fiero TPI plenum.

I don't sell them I just make them for myself or in this case a gift for a friend. The time involved would not make it economically unfeasible to sell. It was designed to make the install look as close to factory as we could.
