Tip I can give is make sure valve train geometry is correct. However, being there proform, I wouldn`t use them, if you do a search on this site and around, you likely won`t find someone happy with them. Noisy operation, untrue ratio, poor quality control, cheaply made are just a few things not right about them.

I agree that they are of questionable quality. In one of the catalogs that sell them, the part description included this:

"These rockers need lots of oil and low spring pressures to survive."

They also stated that the rockers were "entry level".

Hardly a ringing endorsement.

I've never heard anyone brag on them either. You get what you pay for.
