I'm almost 100% positive you have the right part number, I'll check to make sure when I get home (I have the box they came in in my basement). I swear in this months 5.0 Mustang & Super Ford magazine I saw that one of the bigger parts dealers (not summit or jegs) was selling the set of 16 of these (Ford Racing) for $68! I'll check into that as well once I get home. Hope this helps!
dude! that would be awesome if you could help me out.. that would be the 2nd best deal of my week.. im goin to look at an 88 notch 4 cyl for 100 bucks today :)

yup! those are them-Just bought a set myself for $104.88 on summit.


Cool thanks! Is there any specific way to prep these before i put them in? ive heard of putting them in a cup of new oil overnight or something, but i cant remember if that was for my stang or my eclipse
This is what i did-

Take the lifters, place them in a small container-that you can fit all 16 of them in an upright position, and pour an entire quart of 5W30 oil into them and leave them for a few days. The oil bleeds the air out. the longer the better.

Later Ant :nice:
