ok, vortec center hole valve covers are way over priced!

Using 1.5 rockers and doing the spring upgrade can I get away with using some "junk yard" $15 used ones in decent shape?

See any issues with this?

If your using stock rockers then yes you prob can.
If using roller rockers you have to have narrow body rockers to clear the valve cover bolts plus with a high lift cam they might make contact at high lift with the stock cover unless you use some sort of spacer or extra thick gasket, but you would have to check.

You can also buy adapters to bolt the old perimeter bolt covers on the center bolt heads.
