Default ATTENTION ALL WHO HAVE ROCKERED THEIR SERIES 1

What is your review on them?
Were they worth it?
Have you been to the track with them?
How much have they helped?
I am curious as I don't believe I've seen any reviews on them since they were recieved.
Just curious if they would be a just expense for my tax return.

Thanks in advance

I don't have them but I really don't think the $$ for power out of them is worth it. I've been doing some research and have been working on different rockers to work. We will see where that goes but I'd rather spend $400 on N20 and run a 25 shot then spend $400 on 1.7 rockers.

The only person I can think that has them on is DrJay, but he'* not around much anymore. Try a PM. I've got a set, but aren't going on till I get my heads done.

Welp finally got them on there right. Took it out for a little butt-dyno test. Floored it and the numbers are whizzing by faster than I could count! 20-40-60 HOLY CR...oh, its raining..blah oh well, maybe I'll try them out when its expected to stop; July (Welcome to Washington I guess). I did get to try it out at highway speed. 60-70 bout as fast as you could say it but it fell flat on its A$$ at about 5000rpm. Seems like its time for a little injector tuning, but I'll look more into it when its dry out.

Initial thoughts? They're heavy as H***, but I've got nothing but stock to compare them to. Are aftermarkets usually heavy? Sheesh, you'd think for aluminum...Also they're noisy. Not annoyingly or scary noisy, just...noisier (is that even a word?). No biggie, I've read from quite a few places being "noisy" is a roller rockers trademark.

Any of the rest of you get them on yet?

Ok finally got a working AFC from ZZP (awesome he sent it second day air!), set it at an initial 87% (~36#) and took it out for a butt dyno now that the ground is much better. I putted around town for about 20min and when I finally floored it at about 15mph I actually said "WHOA" outloud with nobody else in the car. Honestly I don't know which was better, the day Will and I put the 2.2" pulley and K&N filter on or today. The pulley and filter did wonders for the low end but not so much up high. But now it just pulls and pulls and pulls. When I jump on it the boost used to dance around the 10psi mark, now it seems to stay right around the yellow.

Nope. I'd have them if he had.
