COMP CamsĀ® Releases New Solid Roller Lifters for GM Gen III (LS1, -2 & -6) Engines

Innovative new lifter design yields weight savings and maximum reliability for solid roller equipped Gen III engines

Memphis, TN, July 04, 2007 --( In their never-ending quest to provide the most advanced valve train products in the world, the COMP Cams® engineering team has recently introduced a new, improved solid roller tappet to the Endure-X™ line. A weight savings of 14 grams per tappet over the earlier #8950 Gen III solid roller tappets means that these ultra-precision quality lifters will allow your Gen III engine to rev even higher – thanks to significantly reduced valve train weight. An enhanced, pressure-fed oiling design, including EDM Oil Injection™ to the roller axle and bearing, ensures long life, even when used in a street application. The new COMP Cams® Gen III Solid Roller Lifters also feature a Tool Steel axle, recision-sized needle bearing rollers and rebuildable design to ensure years of dependable service in even the most demanding of applications.

The new COMP Cams® Gen III Solid Roller Tappets are suitable for applications ranging from high performance street to high rpm drag/road race. They are available individually or in sets of 16 for 1997 to current LS1, LS2 and LS6 engines and can be run with COMP Cams® Gen III street and race solid roller camshafts or with any other Gen III solid roller camshaft.
