Rhodes lifters?

Hey All,

You may remember me posting about my engine combo not having sufficient low end torque for my needs, probably due to my cam selection. I'm running a Comp Xtreme Energy 268, Performer RPM intake, edel heads etc etc.

Anyone used the Rhodes lifters? Can I believe their advertising?

I have seen a magazine dyno test where they were showing improved low end torque av a similar engine to mine using them?

I see PAW sells them and that they're not that expensive.

I'm on a real tight budget now, and can't really afford a higher stall converter (probably need 2800 but have 2200) and a lower rear end gear (have 3.31 and probably need 3.73). Those things are off in the real distant future right now...

Just wondering if I could use the Rhodes lifters to help the power down low and if I could use them without changing my camshaft, which btw has about 3k miles on it.
