Kevin's definitely got a lot more engine building experience than I do, but I'm in the 'so far, so good' phase with my engine, and I relied heavily on Edelbrock and CompCams.  Click on the 'Visit My Garage' button below to view my engine's 'recipe.'  See if it's close to what you have.  If so, I'm in the 400hp range, FWIW - you might be close if not there depending on what you went with.

Failures?!  I have used before without issue but I certainly believe you.   I appreciate the warning!

Back in the day we used to ride around in jacked up cars and poke fun at people that lowered. Lessen: keep your mind open.

Back in the day they were some of the best on the market. But recently they have been absolutely junk!! I had multiple failures right out of the box. Do a little reading on other forums online and you will see many many complaints. I wish you the best of luck with them!!

Here’s a link to one of a few discussions about lifter failures.
