    Default 8.1 roller lifters--stock?

    Can you tell me if my 03 8.1L came with roller lifters or flats? thanks

    The 8.1L has a roller cam.

    So If you have a roller cam, does that mean you automatically have roller lifters?

    Reason I am asking is because I have a 94lt1 and it has a roller cam, BUT it has flat top lifters?? I kinda thought that it was weird, but now you really got me wondering??

    I think you have these confused. A roller cam means roller cam follower or lifters or tappets... they have several names.

    Thank you for the info. I thought it may but it is sure hard to find any info at GM.
