    Just installed a new cam with 488/510 lift, and 1.5 roller rockers. Do I need to have the rocker studs pinned or changed so they are actually threaded in? I have been told yes and no so am not sure. If this needs to be done which is the better way - pins or actual studs? What is the cost of doing this?

    Thanks, Kerwin

    I personally would go for the screw in studs. Can't say if you need them or not, but I prefer them.

    I agree, screw in studs. Especially with more lift than stock. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    Stock studs will usually hold up to about .500" lift but spring pressure also has a lot to do with it. Screw-in studs are much better than pins and I would reccomend doing that. Also buy a GOOD set of ARP's. As far as cost to have it done, I charge $125.00 labor in my shop for doing it.

    You did not say what kind of spring pressure you are running. if stock you might be ok. Any thing else and I would go with ARP screw in studs
