    Our team was required to use hydraulic lifters for the "Amsoil Engine Masters Challenge" in our antique 1957 Chrysler 354 engine. We contacted Johnson Lifter Engineering. Not only did they speak English,but developed a performance hydraulic roller lifter that helped us win the Torque Master Award, a special achievement award, and we were runner up in the total competition beating 18 competitors including two Ford hemi's. Thank you Johnson Lifter! Bob Walker Hot Heads Research & Racing, Inc.

  • Hi Jason Diroff Here is a copy of a dyno sheet & picture of a Ford Fe engine we built using your Lifter # 3216BB . Even this is more of a show car then a drag car your product work very well . After our first valve lash adjustment we did 30 test & then re check our valve lash & did not have to readjust . Keep up with the good work & talk to you soon.

    This is the lifter that comes in the fastest Camaro ever produced (ZL1) that makes 580 HP. Lifters can make the horsepower you expected from your camshaft. "You either get it or you Don't"

  • Best quality lifters in the world. Made in the U.S.A.. Out performs all competitors. Be sure you go to one of their suppliers, others are just using the name, but don't perform any where close to these. Wouldn't buy any other lifters, with their experience and precision, all others are crap. If you want quality and reliability this is the place to go.
