Default aftermarket rockers

im looking to get a little more power out of my 318 & saw on here that 1.7 roller rockers would be a good way start without spending a load of $$$.what brand would be best for me to look at?

I don't know about the 318, but a cam kicked my hemi in the ass. But with efi I had to get (hemifever) to tune it. Free up the exhaust, free up the intake, could help a bit. Perhaps there are better heads that you can bolt on?

I have always liked Harland sharp but I'm sure you'd be fine with most popular brands. Just need to check the sweep on the valves and cover clearance

I have a decent one laying around, is it cost of the cam holding you back or will you need to pay someone to install it?
