    Waste of time on a stock engine, with the exception of the LT's, you're not going to gain anything for the time and trouble involved. Use the time and money more wisely installing the cold air intake of your choice. You'll see instant results, and it'll compliment your LT headers.

    if theyre a bigger ratio and he's sellin 'em for cheap i'd say do it. not that much work. . . . .you'll need springs and prob pushrods for bigger ratio though. if theyre 1.7's by all means do not do it. actually. . . .unless he will sell you all these things might as well buy cam. . . .if you had to buy pushrods and springs just to do rockers you might as well buy pushrods/springs/cam.

    If he gets a cam...he won't need them, they are only a band-aid intended for a little more lift until he can get a cam.
    Or at least that was the impression I got by the ratio of the lifters, I may be wrong.

    this is correct. if theyre not roller rockers and they're just uppin' the ratio and he wants cam they would be pointless.

    i dont see a ratio that he has posted though but if he can get the info that would probably give him a much better answer.

    I would guess that they are 1.8 seeing as stock is 1.7 if I remember correctly, it's been a long time since I did the mods on my 2001 SS Camaro before I sold it.
    Or maybe the aftermarket is 1.7, I just can't remember anymore.
