That torque number seems kinda off to me.... can anyone verify.
Carpoint is often wrong... esp w/ early 90s cars and older.

Is this true? I didn't think we had roller rockers...roller lifters yes, but the rockers I just replaced were not rollers. The ones I put in were rollers but no the stock ones...

I suppose it depends on the car and driver. Mine is mostly stock with almost 200,000 miles on it, and I've smoked a few TBird SC'* around here...

So, I guess that means they're close...

Mine are rollers. But just the pivots, not the contact points. 2 bearings per rocker.

a stock sc t-bird could beat a series 1 ssei, but again it all depends on mods and the driver. But if u put a series 2 ssei against a sct-bird, the bird would get smoked. And the newer bonnies with the newer style series 2, the bird would get killed even more. But yet again the bird could have enough mods to beta a series 2 ssei, but it would have to be modded up the butthole.

You have that backwards. The 2000+ are a bit heavier.

oh no doubt the newer bonnies are heavier, but they also put out a lot of HP and torque at low end then the older ssei'*.

The 2000+ are identical in performance numbers to the 95 non-supercharged and 96 SC engines.
