    Default Skyline 3.0 Liter L6 Valve Cover?

    I was asked the other day if I had ever seen an L6 valve cover for a 3.0 liter and I said no. After some research I found there was a skyline motor (I6) of this type made in Australia.
    Does anyone have a picture of the valve cover?
    Will it fit an L6?

    GTS-R

    The ultimate version of the R31 was the RB20DET-R powered HR31 GTS-R Coupe (800 units built for group A evolution). It had a reworked version of the normal RB20DET with a much larger turbocharger on a tubular steel exhaust manifold, as well as a much larger front mounted intercooler boosting power to a factory claimed 210 ps (154 kW), with racing versions making 460 hp (343 kW) in Group A trim.

    There is no L30 skyline motor. The Skyline motor you are referring to is an RB30.

    No, the RB30 valve cover wont fit on an L series head.

    Thanks!

    Have you ever heard of an L6 valve cover that has 3liter markings?

    No, not factory from Nissan. If there was such a beast, it would have to be a custom or aftermarket job.

    That looks like a modified Kameari Valve cover.

    It's one of the few different Kakimoto Racing/Kameari valve covers that were sold. Some of the others are in that thread but it's not modified.
