As far as Higher ratio Rockers, Is there anything we can use on the 95 SC series 1 engines. Something I can mod to make work?? Will SBC rockers work?

I have to make this oversized Intake work.......

Considering the heads are almost the same on the Series 1 and two, im pretty sure the aftermarket rockers for the series 2, will fit the series 1. And for all those people that are going tyo reply they DONT fit, tell me youve tried them and they dont.

I dont see how virtually the same block and heads, have different rocker dimensions.

Email Scott Cook from Intense, he may be able to shed some light our way for some series 1 rockers.

Series II rockers won't fit. A former member tried to no avail. They have issues with the valve covers.

There you go everyone.....

Mod some cheap valve covers of aluminum, and you can get 15-25 whp with some $300 rockers.......

Sounds good to me

I think you'd need taller valve covers and to redrill the mounting post holes, and probably a guide plate.

My brother in law recently had roller rockers put in his 68 Mustang, and the guy who did them forgot the guide plate and the pushrods wiggled.
