The chevy lifters is high revs lifters.Did not test it on my bakkie to see how high it can revs now.Can not say that I have better performance with it.

Do a EFI conversion ,more power for the same fuel consumption as with the carb.

Cums standard with injection,problem is it limits too early,at 4500 revs and gear ratios r way too short...

You do not have to remove the head to replace the lifters.You only remove the tappet cover ,rocker shaft with rockers and pushrods.No adjustments needed for valve clearance.It is an hydraulic system.Remember to bleed the new lifters before installing them.
