    rocker arms

    Ok so I bought a set of after market rockers. They look nice but wont clear my valve covers. I do have aftermarket valve covers but they hit right at the rail where the gasket goes. In fact they still hit after I clearence them as much as I felt comfortable. Anyway what I want to do is get a set of strong rockers that will fit stock valve covers without spacers. Any sugestion are appreciated.

    Check into the trunion upgrades. Comp cams makes one and also CHE I believe it is that takes the stockers and makes them good for I wanna say 10k rpm without the added weight of all the rollers and such

    Brett over at Landspeed can tell you more about the rockers from CHE. Give him a call as he knows alot more about valvetrains than I could remember if I tried. His number is 586-354-0626. Great guy with great advice

    I will call him as soon as I get a chance. I don't need them to hold at 10k I do have alot of lift and turbo pressure that is what I want to be sure they are good for.

    Thanks

    Did you get the ones off eBay with the adjusters on the pushrod ? I did and had to do A LOT of grinding on the back side of them....make sure yours clear the head too, mine hit the valvecover rail and the head when I started on them

    Yeah they were from ebay. I don't want to grind anymore. I have also decided that I don't like the pedestals. They do look nice. Just want something that works out of the box.

    Be very careful, I hit about 3,500 rpms and snapped one of those Allen head bolts. I hate the pedestals too!

    I have the Crane adjustable full rollers on my wifes car. Fit without any grinding on anything using the stock covers.
    I believe Comp now also makes the same thing as well.
