Trying to get this order in and I'm confused as hell. Wanting to do 1.9 rockers and springs...what is suggested?

ZZP has the 1.9 modified rockers for $274 if I send in mine first. Then the Comp 105 springs. But what I cant figure out is if I can use the stock retainers and locks?

Problem is I read on another site that setup is not recommended for the 96 L67.

Going to eventually install the XP cam and I know that the 1.9's don't work with that but it didn't seem that was what these folks were talking about.

(been to so many damned sites in the last 2 days I cant remember where I read that at...so I'm asking the people I trust)

Modified rockers will work fine on a 96 (TonySmooth89 ran his forever with no problems). I have a set of modified rockers im looking to get off my hands if you want to go that route.

If you're gonna do a cam then you should hold off and put some good roller rockets with the new cam or use the yella Terra or harlan sharpe's with the 1.9 ratio like I did and skip the cam. If I had it to do over I would do the cam change w/good quality roller rockers.

i think I used the stock retainers and new locks.
