    Hey I'm just wondering if I will need rocker arm stoppers in my sr20de (autech) as its going to get a fair flogging, or is this only necessary in a turbo sr?

    Uhhh, when a rocker arm flies out would you rather:
    1. it immediately smash into a piece of pre-bent steel, bend it and break into a few pieces
    OR
    2. Bounce around inside the rocker cover for a short time while you kill the motor and put the rocker back to where it came from?

    Also, it's pretty hard to pop a rocker out. I bash mine on limiter forever and never had one pop out. No rocker stopper, stock ecu. No dumb Bee-R limiter. Oh, and collapsed lifters too, that are super loud. S13SR.

    If you want to make a rocker stopper, you need to make a cage around the rocker so that the rocker can't go in any direction, left/right back or forward. More importantly, you want to keep the back end on the pivot.

    Riding limiter doesn't kill or make then pop out. I sometimes redline the car and leave it on limiter for a for seconds because I feel like it. Sometimes I get a sweet POP! out the exhaust.

    If you have the wrong limiter, you will break one the first time you hit limiter.

    I think making sure you have the right oil (high moly/zinc) goes a long way. Cos I've done nothing other than for the motor and it's holding up after 220k km.
