Roller rockers

What would happen if I changed my stock ones to some roller tip 1.7 rockers?

We have vendors here which sell what you need I believe. Look in our Vendors section and follow some links.

You need to get the right ones to make sure they don't run into interference issues with the valve cover and so forth.

Not for the casual wrench turner. If you can change your own oil - but little else, these might not be for you. Consult a mechanic.
If you can rebuild an engine, you're the right person for the job.

Ya I can definetly do it myself, I just wouldnt know how to adjust the valve lash! Would this be a good upgrade for a 3.0 or what?

Because:
I modified a set of 1.72's for my 3.0L in 2000 for testing.
After 10,000 miles and 5 installs, I found a better way to do that and have been marketing/distributing them since 2003.
To date I've installed over a dozen sets.

Go to http://www.rogueperformance.com and read up on Fred's work. I've been using his site for years and he is the 3.0 guy, believe me. Not just 3.0's, lol -- but he's one of the few to really develop them.

LMAO YOUR Fred!! read about you in a few posts! Good to meet you. Those are the exact rockers I was looking at getting! Before I can order them though, I have a misfire on my #4 cylinder that I need to diagnose. Please check out my other post about this and HELP!! lol

Now Im not so sure if I have stuck lifter or a valve problem. How can you tell what that ticking noise is coming from, lifter or valve???
