5.0 guys..... 1.7 ratio rockers
i just picked up a set of omega 1.72 roller rockers for a price i could 't refuse in good shape. im going to give them to my brother for his birthday coming up, he has an internally stock 5.0 in his mustang. what other changes do i need for changing from a 1.6 to a 1.72?
new pushrods, or stock length?
new valve springs to handle the extra valve lift created?
will the extra valve lift clear the pistons ok? i believe a stock 89 5.0 has dished pistons in it.
thanks for the input
