Yeah, that's what I wanted to try. Seems like a lot cheaper route. Using the bone plate as guidance, wouldn't have been TOO hard. Plus I work with a machining shop so getting this done wouldn't have been that difficult of a task. I may try it if I run across another cheap block.

. The video mentioned something about it not being cheaper because the lifters cost more... WOW! ... $560/16 at Rock Auto pricing! ... Those 60 degree V engines are always a pain to do anything with...

LOL nevermind then! That guy would have definitely come out cheaper with retro-fit lifters!!! A Lunati set is $300. $260 for a decent retro cam and your in the ballpark. I'm removing that video from my favorites now lol

Back when this idea first was thrown out onto the interwebs the cheap idea was to go to your local u-pick-em salvage yard, open up 2 of this V6's and snatch 16 used lifters, paying like a buck per lifter....bring them home and dis-assemble the hydro guts for cleaning and then use them in your build.....risky because you don't know the lifters past life(oil changed regularly or no, mileage??, etc) and you can't service the roller end.

I threw the idea away long ago.

. Yeah, would only make sense for the DIYer to sort through used lifters in the yard... totaled low mileage vehicles would be best bet... maybe I'll do it that way...
