|cobalt327||And you've tried them?|

I am a little reluctant to try them on modern dual pattern cam. With sharp ramps and designs looking for more power under the curve may not react well to roads lifters but havent tried it.
They do work good for long duration older style single pattern cams. But usally used in the street sizes larger cams race cams do not respond well.

|cobalt327||I used a half set (the intakes only) on a Pontiac 455 w/a fairly big single pattern cam. Worked like a charm. Noise? That's music.|

|flyboy corvette||I purchased a 69 corvette 427 390 HP that was being restored and never been started since restoration and engine rebuild. I didn't know the engine builder and previous owner had installed rhodes lifters in it. Man was I shocked when it started. I thought the engine was coming apart, but it had good oil pressure. Its a very bad sound and I hate it, Maybee it will be quieter with the hood on. It does seem to have a lot of low end torque and power.I just don't think I will be able to stand the awful noise. This car has stock mufflers and is very quite so all you hear is the lifters.|

They work quite well by increasing vacuum and low end torque. Their new VMax Lifters are the way to go.

|wally||I just took a set out of my son's ElCamino 'big block' Apparently someone tightened them too much and they [one] ate the cam...car just never sounded right like it had a knock under certain loading...seems the worn lifter might have been allowing leakage and either pre-detonation or hot air leakage anyway we put in a new performance cam and lifters and it now sounds like Chevy and run out nice. I suggest they can be problematic you gotta know what your doing|
