If I change to 1.6 rockers would I have to get new pushrods too? It makes since to because of geometry but I am unsure. Thanks for the help

you may not have to get new ones but its always a safe measure to check to see if you need longer ones, youll need a solid lifter, a test spring, and a length checker, always just check and make sure!

If you don't have aftermarket heads, you also may need to grind the pushrod slots in the heads for clearance because the 1.6 ratio moves the pushrod closer to the stud pivot. You'll have to pull the heads to do this.
