No clue about URO or their valve covers, but, really, it's just a valve cover. Either it seals or it does not. Of course, I don't like having to re-do a repair in which case I'd prefer to have a higher degree of confidence that a part will "take" the first try: a new OEM can be had for about $150; for $75 you get piece of mind and, perhaps, less oil loss (and time loss).URO is pretty much cheap bottom barrel Chinese crap.

It will start leaking in short time. They are not very good .I am as well? Has anyone discovered any other good options?
Mine has been fine so far. Time will tell though.I am as well? Has anyone discovered any other good options?

If it doesn't work, it's easy enough to swap another gasket in there and see if it seals. If not, I'll bite the bullet and buy an OEM one. It was worth a shot though as my OEM one leaked really bad.
Should have followed up on this...no it's not leak free by itself. I added a LIGHT bead of RTV to the bottom of the gasket, let it skin up, re-installed, has not leaked since. It will just be more work next time that I need to do it.Is yours aftermarket valve cover still leak free? how many miles so far?
Install dry.Slightly related question...
When installing a NEW valve cover does it get installed dry or does the seal need to be lubed?
I've reinstalled them and even installed new ones but this question popped into my head (cause I'm going to be replacing one) and I can't seem to pull out an answer (from my head)!
