How do you like them? They look high quality, they would be going on a daily driven 400 with a comp 270H cam and about 9.5 compression.

I've used rollers before, but never on a daily driver. So, I'd like to hear from anyone who has run them over the long term, if you've had any issues with them.

Thanks again FTE!

I have used them and likely will again. They are just as good as Crane or any other good quality rocker.

I have used them on different engines since 2009. I like them and would use them again. I warrantied a set many years ago with no problems.

I wasn't going to mention it, but as with any aftermarket part it should be scrutinized closely. I've used a few sets and in one set a rockers trunnion bearing had a bad spot in it. Most people wouldn't have noticed it and just bolted it on but I always look at things closely. They have great customer service, sent a new rocker right out and said just keep the bad one.
