What kinda gains can one expect from 1.7 RR\'s

I'm planning on installing my 1.7 roller rockers this coming week. What kind of rwhp gains and torque can I expect from this mod. Basically is has S&B's, smooth tubes 3in B&B exhaust with no cats and a Vec1. Also I would think that there would be no difference in hp gains from on brand to the next (ex. T&D vs Harland Sharpe)correct?

hp gains between brands would be minimal, imo. Durability, however, is another story.

With those mods a 1.7 install I'd say between 15-25rwhp at the most. Don't forget to retune the Vec afterwards to help pickup power.

I was hoping for between 25-30rwhp. Maybe that's expecting too much.

I've had the 1.7 T & D's on both my Vipers and each showed very minimal gains. Probably the worst bang for the buck mod you can do. I think I averaged about 5 RWHP, but the engine will thank you for them

I installed a set of T&D roller rockers on Nabil from Ontario's car he gained alomost 30 rwhp. Proper pushrod length and adjusment are important.

Nabil had dyno'd his car after every mod. I believe T&D to be the best

I posted a dyno curve last year. I believe it is still in my Gallery on the VCA board. It was a a before and after. I think the peak power was up 15, but, some areas under the curve were in the +30 range like Mike indicated.
