ahh, jeez. Well after a 6 hour night last night I got thos dam rockers on. That was the most crappiest and unprepaired for nights I have ever experienced. I lost like 5 valve spring pins and that cost me about 45 minutes having to find them. The worst part was the back half of the motor. I had to take off the alternator , pull the alternator assembly loose, get all those wires and modules out of there and I still had to work around this grouped up clump of wires that were pretty much connected to about 400 things on the car so removing it was out of the question. The front rockers and springs took about 1 hour and the rest of the 5 went to the back.

Worst part is that I broke a boost line to peices in the midst of all of the stress and now I need to figure out what if connected to. I can fixe it no problem but I need to know what it connects to. It'* that tiny plastic vacuum (boost) line that runs along the rear fuel rail. It comes from that Y below the supercharger snout and comes around along the rear fuel rail and thats where I broke it so if you know where to connect the other end please let me know.

Well all is well now. But how many miles am I going to need to put down before I notice a difference? I feel a little bit but I dont think I'm feeling all of it.

BTW thanks to everyone who helped me along the way.

the rockers will give you the most gain in the upper RPM'* and with a PCM to take advantage you will feel it

Thats great then because the front wheels will spin untill 25-30 mph so I can't really benefit from anymore low end power at all.
