Yeah thanks a lot brad you're a real help jerk :guns: . AS for the others you guys have provided some useful info so you have my respect :D . Of course I would get a roller cam to go with roller lifters. The setup I want to go with is roller everything: rockers, cam, lilfters. But my real question is if anyone has done this with their block how did you go about putting the roller lifters in if the engine didn't come with antirotational bracketry and such, and was their any major modification that needs to be done to put full roller rockers on? Also what problems would I run into if did/could get everything al rollered out? I'm just trying to get as much info as possible before I go spending all this money on this sort of stuff and not be able to bolt it in cause I've never done anything like this to a motor before. All input is greatly appreciated and will be helpful as a reference to those newbies that use the search feature but don't want to go through 9000 profiles and irrelevant post to find this sort of info.

OH and by the way don't post saying use the search causes that's just a waste of a post, unless you're a post whore just trying to increase your post ranking. :nono:

Well, I say that because I've seen people try to use roller lifters on a flat tappet cam. I've even seen cam companies make roller cams out of flat tappet cams, which is a no-no, since ductile iron (which flat tappets are made of) is too soft for roller applications.

you're WAY backwards. what the hell is it when you post asking a question that's been asked dozens of times before? "wasting" a post! use the damn search feature, like the posts at the TOP OF THE MESSAGE BOARDS say!

and in defense of brad, if a question is worthy of a real answer, chances are he'll give one.

well tell you what wehrengod why don't you find the post that answers my questions so thoroughly for me eh? that's right I didn't think so. you guys think you're sooo smart :nono: but why not just go tell everyone who posts a question to use the search button. Because the search feature isn't perfect. So if you're gonna go and defend your lover's honor do it on someone else's time. I don't ask too many questions on here and when I do I finally ask one I don't wanna hear fvkin smartsass answers from pimply faced kids that love each other. Can you argue if my question isn't a valid one? Why should brad just go and say use the search when I already did? He gave me an answer and you know what it didn't mean shit to me. I've seen almost every single post in performance, appearance, and troubleshooting, even a few from racing too (cuz they're fun to read). AND you know what? I'm gonna ask questions about the 3x00 because the stickys don't have ALL the information. AND what the fvck you gonna do about it eh? tell me to read the sticky post and do a search? GO to hell and directly to hell and don't collect $200 :nono:!! Like I've said before I'm not going through all the damn profiles saying I have roller this or that, what I want to know I've already asked so if you don't have something good or informative to say then shut your pie hole!! :guns:
