Roller tips without roller trunnions are a joke. Save your money for some real parts. Have the heads magnafluxed for cracks. If they're cracked, smash 'em with a sledgehammer so that nobody else will get screwed on purchasing them. Competition Products has a "kit" of valves, springs, retainers, keepers and seals to fill a cylinder head. Call 'em up and talk to 'em. You'll need to know the static compression ratio of the motor before you can purchase a cam. You'll need to know what cam you're going to use before you can buy springs.
