Do I need the other, "related prducts". This from ZZP 1:9 ratio rocker arms, as I am getting the valve covor gaskets since I need them. But the others? Look at related products. http://zzperformance.com/grand_prix/...p?id=426&msg=1 I'm looking for shift points of 6000 though every gear. So, the springs/ pushrodsd are not nessesary? They say 6100 or greater they are. I will be getting the DHP.

You shouldn't need the springs or pushrods with 6k shift points. We have stock springs in the SSEi with 1.9 rockers and it has 160k on it, its had the rockers since 70k, and it shifts at 6k with no problems, we also have stock springs in the Monte with no problems as well and it has stock 5800rpm shiftpoints. But every once in a while someone has a problem breaking a valve spring, its not something I would worry about though because its probably something that would've happend with stock rockers anyways. But I would just get the rockers and gaskets. Some people get new rocker bolts because they are supposed to be TTY, however I've reused them plenty of times and as long as you tighten them down to the torque spec and make sure you clean all the oil out of the bolt holes before screwing the bolts in you should have no problems reusing your original bolts.
