    Question Valvetrain

    Hey all. I recently bought an 01' TA WS6 and it has a bit of rocker knock. Anyway, I wanted to replace them and was wondering what the best parts are that don't require any machining. Just wanted good stock replacements and hopefully pick up a couple horsepower. These are the parts I have picked out so far.

    Now I don't have any idea what kind of springs I should get. Could you recommend some? And also if I'm missing anything else I would need... Thanks in advance.

    truthfully, you better off getting stock rocker arms. i had 1.85 rockers arms on at one time and got rid of them when i cammed my car.
    with 1.85 rockers i picked up only 9 hp.

    get ls6 springs.

    most cams are designed for stock rockers ratio... unless you get a custom cam or one designed for 1.85 stay with stock...
