You already have the drop in filter. See my posts for a description on modding the airbox, making a homemade heat sheild and Porting and polishing the MAF that on a dynojet yeilded the same numbers as most aftermarket kits. As far as a catback goes. Save your money, buy a flowmaster 40 series with either a turndown if its a pickup or stock tail if its a blazer. As far as the thermostat goes, it's been proven that if you dont reprogram the ECU to match the therm you will see no benefit. As far as the rockers go, couldn't tell ya. 30 horse seems like a lot for what amounts to a .1 increase in ratio over stock. Just some thoughts...

Where did you find out about those two "stages?" The reason I ask is cuz I was going to look into the roller rockers but couldn't find anything about them on the web page. Please let me know.

thanks,

Jeff

Truckin Mag has the same ad that is in Sport Truck and it has the stage 1 for 399. The SLP website seems to be generated towards the F-Body and the Vette.

I've called them about the stage 2 roller rockers and they're still in the testing stage. they said they should be out in a couple of weeks. We'll see. And they're going to be a direct swap - no extra work needed, which will be nice.

Will the rockers be 1.5 or 1.6 or both? Did you ask?

Yeah, they're 1.6 ratio. It'll be nice if they truly just swap in place. I agree with you that they shouldn't be advertising them as being available unless they truly are. But, what can ya do? OK - I know nothing about engines, really, so what will these 1.6 ratio roller rockers do? I know rollers are better than the regular ones, but what about the increased ratio? They're advertising a 15 horse gain, but where does this gain come in the power band? I'd like it to be top-end, due to my serious lack of top-end power right now.

I dont Know alot bout it but i believe that the 1.6 ratio rockers will push the valve open farther
to Fill the Commbustion chamber fuller...!
ANd in doing so it creates more power.....!

Any one wanna correct me here........! ?

sorry to rain on your parade guys....heres the deal. '94-'02 trucks come with 1.5 ROLLER tipped rockers. Putting a full roller in there will help a little....also going from 1.5 to 1.6 is a very large increase in lift. 30hp is what id expect. The other issue is that they WILL NOT just bolt on...not unless they somehow keep them from hitting the valve guides, keep the pushrods from binding in their holes and um...make the pushrods the right length to begin with. Talk to bill mach ...he's developing a package for us right now...its on his website.

Hey FORD guy. 4.3s do not have roller tiped rockers. they have self aligning rockers.and 1.5 to 1.6 is not very large change.
