5 passes since the rebuild by Comp. I friend of mine sent his with mine and he had a lifter come apart on the dyno. Since that happened i have heard of a few people say the comp lifter axles or pins are weak and coming apart KO'ing engines.

I had a set of Isky redzones (BBC) that were due for a rebuild. After i thought about it I decided to go with a new set of Morels instead. It just seems like a rebuilt or remanned anything tends to be inferior to new, just my 2 cents. It really wasn't a whole lot of money difference to go with the new set either.

Comp sent him a free set of lifters and a cam. Wonder why the moving target did that??
