Thats damn fast for an L36. Anyway, Im thinking of putting new roller rockers and spring in as my first internals mod. How hard are they to replace?

I would STRONGLY suggest you wait a couple weeks before spending your money..... MyLittleBlackBird and I have something coming down the pipeline that might be a pretty decent cost/horsepower project. We'll be swapping some low-dollar performance mods around and doing a dyno pull afterwards, and you guys might like the results. I don't have any idea how much power we're going to pick up, but it should be decent.

Wanna share the secret? =) All of this is going to be done over probably a 4-5 month period.

Anybody know of a palce where there is a roller rocker and spring replacement guide?

The secret:
http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...ic.php?t=41917

ZZperformance and Intense both sell roller rockers in many different ratios and different pressure springs. But if you are going to get rockers for your L36 then I'd wate for the Comp Cam full roller ER ratio rockers or look for a used set of ZZP ER rocker on ClubGP in there forsale section. The ER rockers seem to be the best for L36 performance.

http://www.zzperformance.com/product...6eb519a86e6bf4 and http://www.zzperformance.com/product...6eb519a86e6bf4 are the only rockers i can find on zzperformance. The remachines stockers seem to be a hulluva lot cheaper.

I think I'm going to get the intense ones because they come in a 1.9 ratio and are cheaper. How much time am I looking at for replacing the roller rockers?

might want to think exhaust before rockers if you dont have any done. 3 inch dp would be a great start and a set of PEM'* would help. But ask anyone to see any power out of those rockers you have to atleast have a 3 inch dp. Our DP'* are horrible restrictive.
