Upgraded the Comp Extreme Hydro Roller 12-423-8 with 1.6 Comp Stainless Roller Rockers boosting the lift to .535/.544 lift. Roller lift. Well after living with the Comp Stainless Roller Rockers for a few hundred miles I have decided to change them out. There is nothing wrong with them it is just that like most every other rocker they are not ideal for larger intake valves so they do not line up side to side directly over the center of the valve. While longer or shorter puch rods will center the roller tip inside or outside of the center there is no such adjustment for side to side other than an offset intake rocker. Problem is only one vendor makes a .05" offset intake and that is Harland Sharp. So I have ordered and will be installing them next week. Moroso hardened push rods, guide plates.
