    He said he will use a ceramic paint for the front, which i hadnt heard of.
    He costs a bit more and in my way of thinking he probably does to good a job. He pushes me to go full show and ive got to stop myself from saying yes.He already talked me into doing more than needed, ive got to say just do bumper, bonnet and fade into the guards
    Im a realist,its when not if i crash this car, so i dont want to spend 16k to see it on a tree or 10, a post , another car, in the water hahaha

    I was told by about 5 people not to run these rockers as these people had them brake on them, I foolishly ran them and broke them too.
    Offshore on this forum also ran them and broke them.

    When looking at the broken rocker it's easy to see why the metal surface (once broken) looked like violet crumble full of air pockets.

    Any time I see anyone running these I cringe

    I'd go with Comp and not YT personally.
    Jesel's would be nice but pricey.

    430ishrwkw NA so far, any higher?

    Whilelie, Genf, i wanted to go for T&D rockers but they wont or havnt made any that fit these heads, same with comp, jesel would but they would have to custom make them. I'll ask my tuner why exactly because he called to cancel them but was told the YT's are the only solid roller rockers that would fit. They were made especially for these heads.
    I know of 4-5 guys who have been running them in the states, massive lift, higher spring pressures, drag and milers, they have used them for over a yr and no breakages. mamo told tuner he guarantees them and theyll run 8000rpm all day. Im sorta stuck with them. You'd expect a company to fix a product thats been breaking so heres hoping

    I'm not sure what heads you have bought but there will be multiple options, hell even stock rockers can probably fit.
