Your welcome and I am glad you like the rocker's.
I will be looking forward to your results with the head porting. Are you running headers?

I sold a set to a guy in California that installed them and is also very happy with the rocker's.

So what exactly does an installation of a set of these take? I'm a little curious, but I couldn't have my truck down for more then a weekend at most and I'm not the quickest at installing things.

This is a easy install. If you have turned a wrench before you can do this in a day with no problem.
It takes me about 1 1/2 hours to do a total rocker arm swap.
Here is a how to....

Found this thread Via Google, I will definitely be ordering a set of these from your Ebay store in the next few days.

I'm chasing MPG more than power. Any reason to think these would hurt MPG rather than help it?

You know how fuel mileage goes...It's how heavy your foot is.
But no I don't believe these hurt fuel mileage.
If anything they should help because of more power and torque and loss of friction in the valve train.
You will find that you do not have to step on the throttle as hard to get the same results.

That was kind of what I was thinking as well. Be on the lookout for a sold set on Ebay to "NightBiker07", that would be me. Probably gonna order them tonight.

That automatically makes you a better seller than some.....I cant stand ordering something and having to wait for them to get it! I will be watching your Ebay account for more sets to become available!

Thanks

Would re-torquing them in the future be necessary? I used a dial-type inch-pound wrench and torqued them to 250 inch pounds (almost 21 FT-LBS) because the wrench is rather old.

A couple of them "clicked" when tightening, I assumed it was the pedestal further settling into the groove. Chattered for about 20 seconds after startup, then after the oil got flowing good, it was silent as it was stock.

You should be all set.
No re-torque should be needed.

To the members that have installed these--have you noticed much difference in performance? What rpms were the gains at? Is the engine quieter, difference in intake or exhaust note?

Thanks,
Jeremiah

Been away for a couple weeks.
My computer crashed....



I have them on my 3.0 but i guess my opinion would be biased.
No complaints only compliments from buyers.
