Default 1/2" taller LS7 valve covers

Who makes a decent fitting taller valve cover for the LS7 that uses stock coil location? I have clearance issues running taller valve covers, thanks!

Holley has some reasonably priced covers with built in coil brackets.

Only way to get half inch is spacers. Most covers are about an inch taller to clear aftermarket rockers. The spacers we use have been pretty good use a factory gasket and have a head locator so they don't move. Other than that our covers are 2" tall and do coils in factory posission or we can shift the coils where needed.
