Did you have to go to a longer push rod with those 1.6 rockers? If so how did you know what length to use? And you say they do clear "stock" center bolt valve covers? Also, what kind of difference did they make? Is the car still as "streetable"?
I hear ya, and I keep going back and forth about that... My engine has 140K on it so if I start to tear into it I may as well build the whole thing. I would go with several upgraded parts, some head and port work too. That's a lot of coin... and a lot of work. Basically the car runs well, it doesn't blow smoke, but it would be nice to have a few more horses under the hood. Eventually I will build it, but for now I'd like to drive it. I'm spending a lot of coin getting new upholstery now, that should be done in a couple of weeks! I want to keep the outside appearence of the engine stock while upgrading the parts inside it.
