Engineers design things...They do not tear them apart after realtime tests.

They are not able to put their designs into test that will duplicate the time that will be spent on the road, or on jackstands with the engine out.

The fact that newer engines have Hydros, and work without problems are in my opinion, Irrelevant. This is mstly due to the fact of the oil system, and the wat the lifters and cam are lubricated. I make ALOT of rod modifications to help the cam lube beetter, this did not even help with the hydros, but on the solids, I have noticed a tremendous difference in 3/4 of the engines that we keep constant checks on......

NO MATTER WHAT, no hydro engines pass through the ddoors of my shop!
