The General Motors LS-based engines respond very well to higher-performing camshaft swaps. But, the higher lift, heavier spring loads, and high-rpm operation can wreak havoc on those OEM rocker arm assemblies. Performance Racing Warehouse (PRW) offers several valvetrain upgrades engineered to work with the higher loads typically experienced when using a performance camshaft. PRW is known for offering great value on branded components you can trust.
Get Rolling With A Double Roller Timing Set From PRW Industries
Anytime you build an engine, the timing chain tends to be one of those parts that isn’t given a lot of thought, especially if a stock engine is the starting point for the build. However, if you’ve ever witnessed the carnage of valvetrain destruction that can occur when a timing chain decides to exit the chat, you will want to give some careful consideration. Enter the PQx LS double roller timing chain set from Performance Racing Warehouse (PRW).
The PQx Double Roller Timing Set for the LS7 is much stronger and more durable than the factory parts and will not prematurely fail or stretch like most single roller timing sets.
PRW has made a name for itself by offering branded, high-performance aftermarket parts that are value priced. Their parts are made in the USA with a focus on keeping components in stock on their shelves. Both aspects are keys to success during the recent supply chain issues that have plagued almost all industries.
The PQx double roller timing set includes timing sprockets machined from billet steel and a large .250-inch seamless double roller chain for longevity. The set also comes with a nine-keyway crank sprocket. This allows for advance or retard adjustments in two-degree increments for a total of eight degrees of adjustment. Offset bushings in the set make cam indexing easy, and the set will fit under most stock timing chain covers (occasional minor machining may be required for clearance in some applications).
PRW has the PQx double roller timing sets available for Gen III and IV engines, including the LS7, LS3, LS2, and LS6. The best part is that these are kept in stock and ready to ship. So if you need to upgrade from the factory timing set or assemble a new build and don’t want to worry about any timing set issues down the road, give these a look.

Diesel Army has a new article up about our Dodge Cummins Pedestal Rocker System. Here’s a snippet:
In my honest opinion, in all of the upgrades available for diesel engines, rocker arms are overlooked. We know they are the bridge between the valves and the pushrods of an engine, but other than that, they get used for valve adjustment and we move on. When you take something like Project Deadspool, something that is constantly abused, valve adjustment should be maintained more often.
Just recently, I had the valve cover off of the engine at a race for a valve adjustment and I was noticing some noise during idle and even at open throttle. I was hoping this could cure it and once inside, I discovered that some of the valves have been adjusted way too tight and some of the plastic caps that separate the rocker and the bridge were broken.
LSX Magazine wrote an informative article on installing an older non electric transmission to your LS based engine. The basis of this type of swap lies within the flexplate and a spacer. Take a look at the in depth article here:

The Hospitality and Commerce Job Recovery Act of 2021 (H.R.1346/S.477) is important to stimulating our economy and creating jobs, as trade shows help businesses to develop relationships that lead to increased sales and new markets for their products.
