New COMP LS rocker design



Thoughts? inside info? looks like a partial-roller, like stock.

After the COMP trunnion upgrade disaster, they can keep them... My COMP trunnions were worn-out in less then 10,000 miles scattering metal chips all through my motor: http://www.ls1gto.com/forums/showthread.php?t=787145 My bronze bushed OE rockers are doing great and I'm not upgrading to any of COMP's new junk. COMP has serious quality problems.

It is supposed to have a larger pad than the factory rocker to allow for maintaining geometry with higher lift camshafts without having the added weight of a roller over the nose. It will be interesting to see what price point they set these at.

If I want better rockers, I'll buy TD Machine roller rockers... But my bronze bushed OE rockers are excellent.

If these come out for $200 or so, then it wouldn't be much to press in a Straub bushing kit and have, say, a solid 1.8 rocker option.
