The only way to know if they would be better is to buy them and try them, as a tiny increase in slot width will lose the advantage. Again, not a biggie.

Re: Shopping for new roller rockers

I ordered the 7/16ths studs. It is at the least, goodness and at the best, improvement in the consistency of my valve train.

Its progress. Baby step but progress at least. I have the cash to have the heads done and buy my rockers. Still need to order the second head gasket. My heads called for a 1011-2 which has the copper ring. Felpro is a bit proud of those at $35 each. Require re-torque after initial run in just to be sure. I always re-torque anyway.

Got the itch bad. Want to see my bebeh running again.

Re: Shopping for new roller rockers

After days, weeks, or racking what little brains I have left I had to make a decision on rocker arms so I decided on these;

They are the Comp ultra gold's. They should last me for many years to come. At least they better.

There are too many choices. I am looking at;

Comp ultra pro magnums(moly steel) for $329
Comp ultra gold aluminum for just over $300
Trick Flow aluminum for $269.95

I will need 1.6 ratio 3/8ths stud. I don't think the die cast rockers would be strong enough for what I'm doing.

oops should have read further down the page before posting.

Any thoughts, experiences are welcome.
Try the Scorpion Roller Rocker. Purchased a set for my sons race car and they are nice and priced right too. His springs call for around 600 open and no problems thus far. Made in America too. We use a stud girdle also.
