    Rocker Arms

    Allright well Im getting ready to purchase the PRC LS6 CNC Heads from Texas-Speed and would like to change out the rocker arms and lifter while im at it. I was thinking about the comp cams pro-magnum roller rocker arm kit and the comp cams ls1 gen 3 solid roller lifters that texas-speed also offers. Any other opinions out there? Thanks

    Well, if your keeping a hydraulic cam, you'll want hydraulic lifters, not solid roller lifters.

    I would say unless your runnin a clutch car there would no benefit to the solid lift cam. Yes it will give you a higher rpm window of power band and you can run a MUCH more agressive grind but you also need to take into consideration that you'll need more spring pressure and it puts more wear and tear on all components.
    If the heads you purchased came with a flow# from the flow bench I would get a custom ground cam to match your head #'s and weight,gears,and comp. to match your exact combo.
    Not an off the shelf grind!!!!
