The places I've looked have all been $300 for a full set of non-MDS lifters, but they're from reputable companies like Inertia. Is there something wrong with the lifters that came out?

the cheapest I have seen lifters for these Hemi's is $300 they are banded in sets of two for the 16 lifters. surprizing with hydraulic lifters, or roller lifters like these, I am surprized you saw noticable wear on the cam!

Yea I was surprised also ,,, I checked cam bearing and ther is no visable wear on them ...... I guess im just gonna order the set I found ...... you wouldnt know where I could pick up a set of 6.1 springs at a good price I hate to spend 500 on the comp springs and retainers

Ok, they have the comp cams stuff and the factory stuff. Just so you know the valvtrain components are the same on the 5.7 to 6.1 heads, only difference is the valves are larger on the 6.1, only the 6.4 has different springs retainers and seals and guides.

I think the price for the stock springs is about $85, and about $53 for the retainers, about $2 a set piece for the Valve locks.
