Early "LA" engines have a few less valve cover bolts than the magnum motors do, and if you install a set of early covers on a magnum, you'll soon find out why they were changed, because they'll leak. It's not a matter of if, but when.
While no one makes a set of chrome covers for a magnum, a GOOD chromer could do them for. A decent chrome job will still cost you around 100 bucks but that's still a bit less than the cheapest polished aluminum covers
