HEy I am looking at putting a set of yella terra roller rockers onto my XH falcon ute. How ever I was wondering if anyone knew of any other better or cheaper brands to look at.
Cheers Cam.

Good point, i don't think they do. Which means, turbo'd 6's with crazy HP are running factory rockers?? I heard a story about factory rockers good for 700+hp

They dont. There are no aftermarket rockers for the ford SOHC. The factory setup is bloody good anyway, which is probably why there are no aftermarket options.

They dont, Ive phoned them before after a similar discussion on the forum - they do not make anything aftermarket for the SOHC 6's. Apparently though you can get rocker from them, but they are just repackaged ford rockers.

They are a roller follower setup, not roller rockers

The set I fitted looked a little like that. Kinda hard to explain how different. Man live and learn eh? I just wonder what the actual brand of rockers I fitted to that last car was then. I know you could get roller rocker from terra for XF just assumed the ED ones were legit.
