should i use solid lifters or hydro

i seen this guy name ashton use twin groove shim mod - Im going to use this mod also

Dont use them. I ran that same setup on my last motor and with a good turbo setup that can flow well topend and keep backpressure down the motor will make power all the way to 9k if you decide to rev it to that. I reved mine to 8700 all day long and the graph was still climbing on the dyno with the tubular manifold and t67 h.o. w/ .82 housing.

You dont need the RAS' and they will only do more harm than good. With the twin groove shims and BC springs and retainers you wont have to worry about throwing any rocker arms. Its a good idea to use a VE oil pump for that extra oil pressure as well, it will help put more pressure on the lifters making it even more difficult for the rockers to pop out.

I never threw or broke any rockers with my last setup. only thing i had over you was the VE oil pump and use a thick 15w50 weight or thicker oil. I use mobil 1 and it worked well.

And if you already have the Rocker Arm Stoppers, put them up for sale on Zilvia. The RWD guys seem to love them and swear by them but wonder why they bend valves during an over rev or drop valves when the rocker still comes off. But they will swear by them. I had a set that i had laying around and sold them on Zilvia the same day I posted them, lol.

Yeah i see post after post of them complaining they keep throwing rocker arms during drifting and pounding off the crappy stock rev limiter which will more than likely get overshot during drifts especially with about 300+whp banging off it. Then they go and buy RAS' and the horror of what ive seen happen next, lol. Why did I bend all my valves or drop a valve? lol. Idiots.
