Tall valve covers are generally for engines that have very high lift cams, 1.6:1 rocker arms etc. Or just for looks if you desire.

See where the oil has been squirting up onto the top surface of the cover? Valve covers are partially responsible for redirecting the oil shooting out of the pushrods back onto the rocker arms, keeping the balls and valve stem tip lubricated. Tall covers are quite a bit taller than stock and may not work as well for redirecting the oil. If you have a high volume/pressure oil pump the oil coming out of the pushrods will squirt 6 feet with the covers off!...lol
Smokey Yunick told me so.
