I got the same quote when I was searching for valve covers gaskets...turns out the dumbasses were giving me quotes for the HEAD gasket, not the valve cover gaskets. retards.

Anywho, I got them from a local mazda dealer for $40 or so each.

I go to my dealer religiously! They know me by first and last name now and know my phone number, year and make of car, model, and mileage off by heart! lol! And my car doesn't even break on me, I just like buying crap for it so it wont ever break!

Anyways, I paid about 120 taxes in for everything needed including the valve cover gaskets, intake manifold gaskets, and throttle body gaskets. If your looking into doing it, I did a basic walk through on my cardomain site (in my sig) so you can see some pics. Other than that, I used the info found on this site to complete the task.

Good luck on the project!

John, call mazda again, or even better go there talk with the parts department, and ask for a valve cover gasket, or even go to ford...

I can't see carquest and napa being that high

no dude, i wish... i asked for a valve cover gasket, both for front and rear and they told me that much, it was [fizzle]ing insane when they told me.. even the guy at canadian tire was "like wow is your car made out of gold" i almost [shizzle] my self when i was told that much

i was thinking maybe 40 to 60 bucks... not 180 to 235
