Cool Transparent Timing Belt Cover for 2JZ

Has anybody tried to install this or something like it on their 2JZ-GE or 2JZ-GTE?

I have not tried this...but I did just cut out the front of mine following a line that it already had so it looks clean and not all botched or anything...this is pretty sweet though it seems safe to "try".

Okay. A little off topic but do other valve covers fit our SC3's? MKIV Supra non-TT should be identical, right?

the mk4 2jzge valve covers are the exact same as our valve covers. the plastic spark plug cover is black though and says Toyota 3000 on a sticker on the front, instead of being beige with the lexus emblem.

Lol at people cutting their upper timing cover. The timing cover was designed to protect the belt and the timing components from debris. It cant do that very well if there are holes in it.

I think it is there more so that people do not get touched and HURT by a moving part when the car is on. This way you can inspect things while the car is running and not worry about hurting yourself. Who cares if it gets dirty just clean it! Dirt dust and bugs get up in there through the bottom regardless if it has holes or not.

I used to have one with a hole cut in it, till I had it mocked up on my spare motor and happened to drop a bolt down there. after I noticed how easily that could have happened to my running motor and how the bolt landed right between the belt and the sprocket at the bottom I didn't put it back on the running motor. Moral of the story is if you cut it put some clear plastic there or something to keep stuff out.
