Ordering new rockers very soon...

I’m finally going to order new rockers but I have a few questions first;

My initial thoughts are to get the 1:9’s but I’ve heard some concerns over piston clearance and valve train stress. (The car never see’s more than 6200 RPM.)

I do have the LS1 springs (yellow ones?!?) and new retainers but I don’t know if I can reuse my old rocker bolts and push rods.

Will I have problems getting the rear valve cover off without removing the water pump housing? I trust that since the higher ratio rockers are refurbished stock pieces that if the cover comes off well enough then the cover should go back on well enough too?

Opinions welcomed…

you cannot reuse the old rocker bolts, they are torque to yield bolts, you will need new ones, you do not need to remove the waterpump to do the rockers. you can reuse your old pushrods.

Id also be weary about roller rockers from Intense. Alot of people on clubgp are finding out that their shiney red rockers are wearing and sending metal flakes into the engine.

But hey, thats Intense.

You don't have to remove the WP, but a bracket close to it, and the alt for the rear VC. The coil bracket needs to come off for the front VC.
