If you get excessive crank case pressure (very common on V6) you will blow the crank seal rather than the camcover seals. ;)
Vectra has different breather system so can use the (ugly) metal covers.

Not if your breathers are clear and the cam covers are only 8Nm tight. I've used the metal covers on my engine(s) for years without any issue whatsoever, although I do stress to people that it is primarily an aesthetic choice and that the notion that you can cure cam cover gasket problems by using metal covers is a nonsense. In that instance if you DO leave the breathers etc without attention then you're asking for trouble, but otherwise there is no problem with using the metal covers per se. On an Omega the oil filler is virtually unreachable with the metal cam covers anyway so it's a daft choice on these cars irrespective of breather design haha!

The gearbox converison is now finished. The clutch operates and new prop shaft is ready. Took it for a small spin and everything works great.

Meanwhile painted the ugly vectra rocker covers to make them look better:





IRL they look better.

pressure regulator - just go to nearest "shrot" and look for audis/vw/bmw. they usually have 4.0bar fuel pressure regulator. but - be prepared for weakest fuel line soon to give up :)
at least - that is my experience on my V6 Calibra.
p.s. have you considered dragracing too? :)
