Are you after the factory ones or the ones used to shim up your lifters for the stage 2?

I'd prefer the ones that came with my stage 2, but I'll take anything as long as it's stainless steel. The non-stainless ones disintegrated.

They are 10mm outside diameter with a 6mm hole. About 1mm thick I think.
The 5/32" washers will be fine.. except they don't have them in stainless steel anywhere. They have every single size except that one!
