Rocker arms

I just bought a 92 Chevy silverado, it has a 4.3 chevy V6, the infamous, "350 with 2 less cylinders" I was thinking on installing some self aligning 1.6 ratio rockers on it for some additional lift to help the exhaust system I have in the works for it sound a little deeper, all I wanna know is will they work without effecting the computer? I think they will, but wanted to make sure, thanks.

THe computer shouldn't really know the difference. It wont change the characteristics of airflow enough that the computer wont be able to compensate. While obviously the airflow into the cylinder will increase a bit, it should still be well within range of the MAF (or MAP depending on what that particular FI uses). From my experience with ECM programming and cams, the major factor in tunability is the cams LSA rating. FI seems to like a wide lobe seperation. You can get away with some pretty high lift/duration numbers and still be okay.
