    Will the stock Rocker arms hold up?

    I am just about finished with my motor swap(6.0, tsp stage 2.5 LS6 heads, tsp torquer V2 cam 112 LSA). My question is this: I have a set of the yella Terra roller rockers and want to run them, but when I first start the motor up I am going to use the stock rockers so everything will pump up with oil pressure, and then put the rollers on since you have to shim them properly. Will the stock rockers work ok with that large of a cam? I just don't want to damage my cam or any of the valvetrain @ startup.

    They should be ok. I'm using stock rocker arms on a cam with .630" lift.

    If your worried get a spare set & send them off to Harland Sharp to be rebuilt. It only costs $250 + shipping there & back. Which is still cheaper than aftermarket 1.7 rockers & you get all the install benefits of the stock rockers with aftermarket performance.

    Yes you should be fine with the stocks for the initial start up. I seen a issue but it was on a cam that was .670 or .675 lift.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!
