    228r and 6.0 combo, opinions needed...

    I recently did the 6.0 swap on my 6 speed TA, and recently read in another thread that my 228r cam is possibly undersized for my 6.0.

    I'm debating on whether some 1.8 roller rockers would fix the small cam issue or should I just try a new cam?

    I feel like my car doesn't make its horsepower potential.

    personally id upgrade the cam and go with a trunion bearing upgrade on the stock rockers vise going aftermarket rocker route. But thats just my .02 man.

    Yeah I know, but changing the rocker arms is so much easier. Lol

    I know I know.

    What really happened was I bought that 228r before I bought the 6.0 cause I really thought I was going back with the ls1. But Brenden has an extra cam that's huge and going to get it custom grinded, then sell my 228r cam for me.

    Hopefully your tuner does re-tunes at a discounted price.
    It's on jackstands.
