I'd avoid the Comp Cams lifters. They've got a bad rep for giving up prematurely. The timing set is probably unnecessary, unless you're getting a cam, and then you'd need new valve springs.

Stick with your original lifters unless there is evidence they are dying. If they are, do your best to get OE replacements.

from zz performance .Have anybody got these how good they are,how much power should i expect and should i get anything else?
ER rockers would be best.
HV3 will work with rockers.
Stay away from the comp lifters, they have been failing for years on other forums, now here.
Pacesetters are a little too large for an n/a car. *&* headers would better suit your hp level.
Aftermarket timing sets have been failing recently and with 105# springs you can see good mileage out of a new stock chain/tensioner.
There has been bad luck with the ZZP Bonnie PCM on here. You may want to take a different route, like Powertuner, DHP, or a standard Intense.
Make sure to use LSx style retainers with the 105s. 105s is a good choice.
And you don't need to upgrade teh pushrods.

Without a cam, it will be hard to break the 200 whp barrier. If you were going to replace the timing set, I would just shove a GT1 in there instead of messing with rockers.

Forget the TB spacer. It will do next to nothing for performance and isn't even remotely worth the price for the result.

Based on my forum crawling, here'* what I've learned about aftermarket timing sets:

With a double roller timing set, you have to:
1) Remove the balance shaft (and plug the hole, as I recall).
2) Do something to ensure clearance between it and the front cover; some use doubled front cover gaskets, others get the front cover machined / milled on the inside where the rub occurs.

And if you're getting any Rollmaster set (single or double), you have to:
3) Get the crank sprocket machined, because they don't really fit 3800'* properly.

My opinion...if you're going that far into the motor, cam it. And if you're not making a track monster, new stock timing set (or maybe a JP single) is adequate.
