Default my bad

my bad on the supercharger question, i thought only SSEi'* and newer SSE'* had superchargers...as for the rockers and cams and such, that'* a lot of money..after i do the exhaust and all that good stuff, other than air intake..is there anything cheap, like $125 and lower or in that range that I can do that would be worth it?

Pay to play baby..you might find them used on clubgp.com. You can also get 1st gen rockers which are a lot cheaper. Maybe 299 new or 200 used...

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but don't higher ratio rockers from a 350 work, as well as being a dime a dozen?

I don't know for sure but I highly doubt it.

It just seems strange. I was looking into some 1.7 roller rockers for my 351 Cleveland, a rare engine with hard to find parts, and 16 of them weren't even that much.

TMoney, if you do change the rockers, make sure you re-measure your lifter to rocker pushrod length just to be on the safe side.
