First off, you're motor already has 1.6 rockers. They're not rollers. When I had my 99 5.2 motor and bolted on Harland Sharp 1.7 roller rockers, there was a substantial performance gain. Some say a gain of 10/20 horsepower. It makes the motor think it has a higher lift cam when it's the rockers doing the work. Get a set. You wont be disappointed.

if you feel like cheaping out, go to a dealership and pick up some stock rocker arms for a viper. if i remember correctly, you want a set from a 1993. a set of 16 is a little under $100, and they are a direct swap with the stock arms. they are a 1.7 ratio, but they are not roller type.

You might get a couple HP by going to 1.6 rollers, not worth it.

Get the Harland Sharp 1.7s
