Discussion in 'VF Holden Commodore (2013 - 2017)' started by GMVPSS, Dec 1, 2017.
My June build missed out but customer care told me it's not classed as a recall at this stage
The ls3 rockers are roller rockers. Based on my vf2 being a September 2015 build I’m hoping I’ve got the older tried n proven parts.
i dont think the stock rockers are full roller rockers, there's no roller on the tip like true roller rockers from ,yella terra , crane ect
the roller on the tip reduces valve stem and valve guide wear as it does not put side ways pressure on the valve stem as the stock rockers do
i would like to get yella terra rolla rockers with different ratio to give more lift.
only thing that worries me is the extra weight on the valve train may affect performance
i think the stock rocker GM engineers designed is very lite to match rest of the valve train lite valves ect
Not to mention, if there was an issue you would have known about it already with an expensive engine rebuild the amount of times your car has been up and down drag strip, warming up the tyres, loading up the engine constantly with multiple runs a night, extreme heat cycles.
Just my opinion, I don't know much tbh.
I'll be checking the letter box tonight to see.
According to the attached it looks like a recall to me. The only good thing here is the complimentary service. Make sure you don't miss out on it as the dealer may 'forget' to offer it to you?
I have spoken to a couple of performance houses and the weight of the aftermarket roller rockers does effect RPM potential of the engine and I have been told by all of them that the standard rocker is ok up to 700hp! Not sure about how much spring pressure it is good for. (We know the rocker arms that are breaking cant handle standard spring pressure!)
Coming from a drag racing background where I run Jesel rockers and 550lb of spring pressure on the seat (1100-1200lb open) and hollow titanium valves I understand light weight, but I wouldn't have thought it was a restriction at 7000 rpm. (I cross the line at 10,500rpm in the GXP!)
It's a rework/update not a recall.
You have that much faith in Aus Post ?
lol no, my mum sent two postcards from QLD in September. one arrived and my daughter checks the mail daily waiting for hers to arrive, but two and a half months later it still hasn't arrived.
Interestingly I sent an express post parcel last Friday that was delivered on sunday to a customer and I received a parcel on Saturday for something I bought online.
so you never know!
Nothing arrived today...
It cant be a 'recall' if you don't have replacement parts available yet...
The airbag faults across many car brands are a recall and they don't have the parts.
Just spoke to my dealer as I completed the Customer Survey today and received a phone call less than 30mins later.
The update is I 'might' receive a letter today.
Each dealer is getting 14 sets of intake rocker arms with the priority to be emergency vehicles (police) then everyone after that. Officially the rocker arms haven't arrived yet, but a Holden employee (and customer of the dealer) told my dealer that they're in Melbourne.
Lets see if the letter is there tonight!!
Recall - safety critical items that may pose either directly or indirectly a risk to life or health.
ie: Seatbelts, Airbags, Electrical fires.
Rework - It needs to be fixed but if the item fails there is a very slim to none chance of safety being impacted because of it.
Exactly! I’ve seen these ls3 rocker arms used in an 1100hp twin turbo ls3 with no dramas.
Yeah boi! Try that in yah furkin Skia Swinger
I sold an SS-V Redline on Saturday only to find out that I got a stop delivery email on Monday stating that I cannot deliver the car unless the fix is complete. I rang my customer today and he was disappointed with the outcome, but I did state to him that it would be better to receive the car fixed than with a potential problem.
Anyway, I was assured that parts would arrive Monday (maybe) and my customer would be placed on the priority queue to be fixed first as his car is a sold car in our system. Another customer of mine received his car a couple of weeks ago, and I called him and stated to leave his car in the garage.
