So this means they'll last 20,000 miles instead of 16,000?  :)

I thought these lifters were stock in the 110s.  Am I mistaken?

It would be interesting to see the breakdown of the hydraulic unit. Those lifters look exactly like the Comp Cams units they sell to the car world.  :nixweiss:

I love how they hedge on their claim: "MAY increase durability by 25%".  Talk about a meaningless advertisement.

Thanks, Phato1!

You're welcome.

We will see how long they last because I had them installed in my '11.5 during a cam chest rebuild due to a failed OE tappet - at only @7400 miles - this past spring. Now have @ 12000 miles and so far no valve train noise issues. I will probably examine them over the winter to see how they are holding up.
