Default Cam Gear Cover???????

i want to take the cover off my cam gears(AEM) and cut/mill my valve cover in order to expose them some more (i seen it on a car on youtube and thought it looked neat). Anyone done this before?? Will it put more wear and tear on my timing belt? What do you guys think?

I wouldn't do this. The cover is there for a reason - to protect timing belt from water and elements. And I don't think it's a good idea to tinker with timing belt on interference engine

the cover is just plastic, so maybe get a custom plexiglass cover or somethin? That'd be soooo unique and so good man

Jest because you cut it to show some of it, that doesnt mean a rock still cant get in there.

Here you go, they have a GReddy clear timing cover, for a few honda B engines and the H22.

well if you have an adjustable cam gear, and are always messing with it , i wouldn't remove it, but i would cut a hole in it so you can access the bolts to adjust the gear. but the cover is there for a reason and should not be removed.
