I want to make sure I get the correct stuff so I don't ruin the finish. So is the Super Duty valve cover chrome or aluminum?

Thanks guys!!

It only comes in polished aluminum. It holds a shine for a while - looks OK but not great.

Took mine to a local shop to get chrome plated. Before/after pics here:

Ok, I'll admit it. I always thought of chrome as cheating but your engine bay is AWESOME!

fierosound, just wanted to say your engine bay looks amazing! Is it a stock super duty, or do you have a write up somewhere on any work you've done to get that look? I especially like the air filter housing, it just looks... right.
