Welp finally got them on there right. Took it out for a little butt-dyno test. Floored it and the numbers are whizzing by faster than I could count! 20-40-60 HOLY CR...oh, its raining..blah oh well, maybe I'll try them out when its expected to stop; July (Welcome to Washington I guess). I did get to try it out at highway speed. 60-70 bout as fast as you could say it but it fell flat on its *** at about 5000rpm. Seems like its time for a little injector tuning, but I'll look more into it when its dry out.

Initial thoughts? They're heavy as hell, but I've got nothing but stock to compare them to. Are aftermarkets usually heavy? Sheesh, you'd think for aluminum...Also they're noisy. Not annoyingly or scary noisy, just...noisier (is that even a word?). No biggie, I've read from quite a few places being "noisy" is a roller rockers trademark.

Any of the rest of you get them on yet?

Ok finally got a working AFC from ZZP (awesome he sent it second day air!), set it at an initial 87% (~36#) and took it out for a butt dyno now that the ground is much better. I putted around town for about 20min and when I finally floored it at about 15mph I actually said "WHOA" outloud with nobody else in the car. Honestly I don't know which was better, the day Will and I put the 2.2" pulley and K&N filter on or today. The pulley and filter did wonders for the low end but not so much up high. But now it just pulls and pulls and pulls. When I jump on it the boost used to dance around the 10psi mark, now it seems to stay right around the yellow.

A comparison of KR would be unfair as I had to stop at a shady looking gas station and dump 92 in it. Tomorrow I'm going to get some more Tolulene, try to equal the same octane as before, and see how that looks.

I'm excited to see what you other guys get out of it, see if mine is just freaking out or thats the way it is.

(oh I figured out why it falls on its face in the upper RPM'*: damn gatorback belts are slipping)

Default belts

DJ,

I had the same problem with the gatorback belts at high end... Burnt the up in three weeks... they sucked big time. Went back to the std Autozone belts and no more slip.

I haven't noticed any problems with mine. I guess no one has 100% quality.

Jay, you gotta get to a track. I'm very anxious to see what kind of times your pulling.
