Comp 270S, Comp ProMagnum 1.6 roller rockers... don't want to starve out those

What would it cost for boring/bushing the lifter bores, and is that required or recommended?

Any comments/feedback welcome

Over $400 just for bushing the lifter bores. Not worth it in your case. Overkill for the investment. No need to restrict a 6500 RPM well clearanced and balanced SBF with a solid cam.

Ok, 6500 (maybe just a more ) is all this motor will ever see. Thanks Alex

I use the a restrictor kit from...

www.pricemotorsport.com

It restricts oil to the lifter galleries and cam bearings. It's probably not *required* but I do it anyway. Several passages need tapped out to install the kit, so it's not recommended unless the engine is torn down to the block, and will get a thorough cleaning. Restricting the lifter galleries very much is not recommended for hydraulic cams either. Their lifters need a decent amount of oil to function.

Restricting the top end is probably not required at my level, but I do it anyway.

Good Luck!
