I just checked with INTENSE and Chris says these will work for the L36. He is changing the web pages now...

Sweet! So 300$ for some rockers. Rogue, if you got them, would you also get the new pushrods and springs, or is stock fine on these ones?

Higher ratio rockers are harder on the timing chain so if you have high miles on the car this is a consideration. As long as you stay with stock shift points (ie no chip, or pcm) you should be fine. It is recommended that you upgrade springs and rods since your already in there and the possibiliy of a weak spring from the factory may be exposed with higher ratio rockers.

I plan on doing the 1:9 rockers pretty soon as well. To compliment these I plan on doing pushrods as well and valve springs and retainers. A few questions:

Which pushrods should I get? Lightweight or Oil Restricted?

And I was told that LS6 valve springs and retainers will work.(Okay, more of a comment than a question. But can anyone varify that before I go to the dealer?)

A lot of GP guys have used LS6 springs, I recommend OR rods unless you change the lifters to aftermarket in which case you should get the LW rods. The OR rods will help keep the stock lifters pumped up in the higher rpms. INTENSE is coming out with PCM'* for all series II bonnies in the near future so if you get that after your rockers you car will feel like a whole new monster

so if you have a high milage car then you should probably replace the timing chain when you do the rockers?

No, if you change to higher # springs to support the rockers.

So your saying going with higher springs you dont have to get a new timing chain or is that backwards?
