the way the oil passes around the heads on these cars i dont think it would be a problem, but i have heard that they are a major PITA to install, like worse than FI kits.

You won't have any oil problems. I run BBK valve covers, only I have a Romeo motor. You should have the Windsor heads and I understand they are a little easier to install than the Romeo type. This is a time consuming task. Take your time and do it right, otherwise they will leak. Make sure you put a dab of form-a-gasket silicone on the seam where the timing cover meets the heads on each side. It will take a total of 4 dabs, 2 on each side. If you miss those, it's born to leak. Also make sure you attach the gaskets BBK supplies to the heads, not the valve covers. You must make sure that you stick it on the heads lining up the holes to valve cover bolts the first time. If you have to keep taking it off and resticking it, they will lose their adhesion and you will then struggle to keep them in place while installing the valve cover. Lots a patience is needed. Hope this helps.

Well sorta, yea kinda. Besides the servo, the hydroboost cylinder is also in the way. I was told I had to remove it when I called BBK, but they have been unreliable in the past with their install info. So, I losened the four booster bolts from under the dash. There is also one on the engine bay side as well. Anyway I losened them towards the end of the stud still leaving the nuts on (2 or 4 threads) the studs. That was enough that I could rock the servo unit out of the way while I slid the valve cover in place. I didn't have to disconnect any of the lines or hoses either. For sure this is the hardest side. Oh, and make sure you remove the clutch cable and the o2 sensor harness plug retainer bracket on the back side of the head. Hope this helps.

Note: There's a pic of the valve covers on my car in my "Garage" here.

It was easier because you have windsor heads and the cams are held in the head differently than on the Romeo heads. The cam retaining caps interfere with the installation on the Windsor motor, although you did state that you removed the brake booster.
