How many of you re-use your stock lifters/or new stock lifters when doing a cam swap?
How many of you went with an upgrade and to what.
What lift are they good up to, and hp/rpm?
I reused my stock lifters when I did the cam swap about 40000mi ago and they are still holding up great, granted I have the little B1 cam but they are holding. Reason I am asking is I have a new 348 Forged 9.1-1 beauty sitting in the garage and need to gather the little things to ready it for the swap.
No More Firebird or LS1.

I had a Tick,Tick,tick sound comeing from my valve train which the dealer said was piston slap, I Replaced my stock lifters and pushrods during my cam swap TR pushrods and comp R lifters and now the sound is gone! P.S. stock pushrods checked all good.

I reused my factory units (only had ~20K on them) but when I build my next motor, if I don't do solid roller (which I really want...) I will go with Comp Rs.....as quickWS6 said "it was cheap insurance"

chances are the stock lifters will be fine, but i had one fail on me and it is a pain in the a$$ to change them because you have to take the heads off to do so. if i were you i'd spend the $200 and get a set of new lifters. when i got mine from thunder racing i didn't know whether to get the stock replacements or the R series. they said that the stock ones take ALOT of abuse and are very strong. but take the insurance and get new ones.
