    Right now my Bourbon has a Targetmaster 350 ( sorry, that's all I know). Everything's pretty tight mechanically, but I was thinking about installing the 1.6 rocker arms for added lift. Will piston clearance be an issue? Any other ideas?

    Should not be, target master's are built stock, and the stroke is Derated, so there is plenty of room. better off just swapping cam though, Why polish a turd? /forums/images/icons/wink.gif then youd get mo-bottom end, and more power the right way.

    Yea, I understand what you mean about the "turd" thing, but that's pretty much what I started with anyways LOL (NOTHING worked when I brought it home). The engine has 155# pressure in each cylinder, so I don't want to tear into it yet (it's also my daily drvr) Besides, the rocker arms are something I can do right now, and hopefully see performance gains /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    i think youd be ok, better do some checkin first though, like engine #'s v/s specs.

    shouldnt be a problem,we put those on our race engines all the time with large camshafts and domed pistons.....so yours should be no problem

    Yea but am I gonna "feel" a difference between the two lifter ratios? Or is it one of those mods that doesn't really make a difference, you just remeber spending the money /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
