I would think that with a little more information you could draw more attention. I mean who wouldn't want a set of rockers?? For most people it'* probably a cost thing. Something like cost and performance gains should be stated. Without a rough estimate of either of those I thinks it'* hard for some people to be interested or really give it much thought.

Is there a way you could post something on car domain? That could attract a few more customers and maybe RegalGS.org in the pre-1997 Regals...or I could do it for you. How many people do you need to get some more informantion, we should have around 5 (counting yourself) and if people knew the cost wasn't going to be as high as the $400 set up from seriesoneperformance.com maybe they might join the bandwagon. Just my .02

That is the part about it... Price is going to be based off of quanity. I know modified rockers are not going to be anywhere near $400 if you have a good amount of people. With a good amount of people I could see getting them done for like $250-$300.

As far as performance gains I know of only one person running 1.9'* so I can't really state gains. I would guess that if you had little to no KR you would be able to drop a pulley size and if you had KR it would get rid of that. As far as HP I would have to guess 15-20 WHP. These are all guesses though.

I really didn't want to alot of recruting for this esp. since I'm not looking to make any money off of this. I'm just looking at getting a set made for myself and figured that if more people jumped on the bandwagon that they could have 1.9 rockers too while lowering everyones cost to have them made.

Here is another problem... cores. For those that want to get this done you are going to have to send in your rockers or find another set of rockers to send in.

Maybe I'll just bite the bullet and pay out of my *** for 2 sets of rockers for my car and Ryan'* and then try to market them to recupe the extra money I had to put in to just make two set for the first batch.

I may be interested in something that I can bolt on for an improvement that would work on a stock motor with maybe a smaller pulley in the distant future. It all depends on how well they improve the series 1 compared to stock. I don't know a ton about these newer motors am more of an old school type of guy. I built my Ranchero originally with 1.7 rockers and had to step down to the factory 1.6 Even with GT-40P heads! I was that the motor pulled tons better with the 1.6'* and a smaller 600cfm universal Holley than 1.7'* and a 650 Demon double pumper. That was an expensive lesson learned . Let me know what you come up with.
