Can't see any reasons how it would be bad to run them on your L36. In addition to your intake & exhaust mods they should work great. I would suggest some stronger valve springs with them.

I got1.8 on mine and you can feelthe difference in your butt dyno. Stock springs work fine. I just check the seat pressure befor i installed th rockers.

The point of the 1.84 ratio is to be able to retain the stock springs. From what I have read in the GP community is anyting more than the 1.8s arent worth the added cost and hastle and won't render any more noticalbe results.

Anytime you increase lift or duration stronger springs is a good idea and cheap insurance. Also if your going to be spinning your motor faster to make the most out of the rockers the springs will help prevent against valve float.
