Question Valve cover options

1987
4.2L
Hey all I need to replace my valve cover it leaks and the oil filler cap is lose from warping. I thought I would change it out to an aluminum cover but after looking online I have only seen one that will bolt up “I think” to the existing holes and its $280.00 Omix Valve Cover Die-cast aluminum I don’t want to spend that much on the thing. My question to you is there other options that don’t involve drilling? Should I just go with a new plastic cover, how long do plastics last before they start warping? Thanks
