    LS1 Scorpion Roller Rockers

    I understand that my stock cam runs around .497 lift, which is very nice.
    Not wanting to put in a new bump stick, I was wondering what I would gain from a set of 1.8 roller rockers vs. the stock units.
    I calculate a total lift of around .640 if the stock rockers are running at 1.5.
    How's my math as .640 seems like quite a lot of valve lift.
    Around $300.00 bucks and a few hours installation, they look attractive.
    Should work nice with the SLP air box, modded MAF and exhaust that is already on.

    just so you know the stock rocker is a 1.7 so your benifit will only be around 10hp to the wheels. many people see 30+ with a cam only swap

    Don't use Summit Scorpion Rockers...there are a lot of people that have broken them. There is a reason they are cheaper.

    Just keep your stock rockers and get a good camshaft.
