How much of a HP gain can be made from Roller Rockers??? I was thinking of installing these in a pretty much stock GEN III setup and leaving it alone after that... I've got enough project vehicles to keep me busy.

It's the site of Fredness. He uses roller rockers on his vulcan splash. I've heard that the roller rockers from morana are not a direct fit, and have to be milled. I was going to put a set in, but I totalled my 97 GL and ended up getting a 97 SHO.

Yeah I want to buy some from Fred, but he never replied to my email to him...and on his site there is no place to buy them anymore. It says CLOSED or something.

I have a '97 Gen III Vulcan with nearly 90K miles on it, do you think it would be wise to mess with it??? This is my daily commuter ride in the, so I don't want to mess with it too much...just need a little more OOOMMMPPPHHHH!

As long as the oil changes are done frequently, I don't see how it would cause any problems replacing the roller rockers. I had pulled the valve covers off my old vulcan before, and the valvetrain looked great still, even after 90K miles.

Try IMing fredness on here. I don't know how often he visits, though.

Can you buy heads already Port and Polished? Also, what do Phenolic Spacers do??? I noticed that is also a popular thing to do.
