Watching this topic with interest. It'* either a cam or rockers for me next, and my cam was going to be custom.
Yea I'm not a fan of those cam grinds. It seems to me that they are not setup the best for a supercharged car.

I thought that rockers would be best for most people here just because they can be cheep, installed in a very short time with simple tools, and tuning is really not needed. It would give the person that has done the 'basic' bolt ons another 'bolt on' to do.

As far as the rockers their are a few options and really depends on what people are willing to pay, if they want to upgrade their springs/retainers, if they are going to pay more for pushrods, etc. Some options are full roller either steel or aluminum, steel non roller, and modified steel. To get the full roller and non roller to work with our setup requires a few other parts that drives up the cost.

Honnestly right now I was looking at the cheepest rockers and easiest ones to install thinking that more people would be willing to run them. With them stock springs/retainers/pushrods would be fine and valve cover spacer are not needed. Basically a true 'bolt on'.

Blazin', I'm not a fan of the L27 cams at S1Performance either. That'* why I was thinking of going custom.

I'll watch this. Curious to see how the pricing comes in.

Possibly interested....Depends on the price and if they'll work for my 91 Buick Regal with the N/A series I.

I am intersted in the future too! I am not 100% sure what it would entail for me too, since I have the older valvetrain aswell.
