    Default what kind of lifters and cam to get?

    I have a pretty bad lifter tick/knock.. so, I was going to replace the lifters, cam, and possibly the rocker arms... how do I know what kind of cam to get? How do I know what kind of rocker arms to get... for the cam, I want a mild choppy sound, I was looking at the edlebrock cam and lifter sets, I just don't know which one to get to give me what I want... thanks guys!

    You really haven't told us "what you want" this cam to do for you. You don't really pick a cam by "a mild choppy sound" There are probably 20 different cams that will give you the choppy sound/lumpy idle. You pick one by where in your RPM range you want your torque/hp curve. Edelbrocks a good choice. Your best bet is to call one of their techs & tell them "exactly" what you want. Make an honest determination of how you will be using your rig (towing, rock climbing, mudding, highway driving, city driving, hill climbing etc)
    Also, decide if mpg or more torque/hp is a factor for you. Look through their catalog before you call & narrow it down to 2 or 3 choices that you think you might want & then when you call, ask them to tell you the differences between these, & explain why each one would be beneficial to you & the type of driving you want to do.
