|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.|

|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|

Yay!!! I've got a set in a 390GT with over 70,000mi on them so aside from all the other favorable remarks above they last too! Put a set of 2 1/2 in. Flowmaster Header mufflers on it you'll never here the ticking, or much else for that matter!!!

|bigmark||I think I might try them out, going to get sick of people telling me my rods are knocking but at least I'll have more bottom end.|
