Who makes the most reliable, well made replacement MDS and non-MDS hydraulic roller lifters for the 5.7 hemi? There appears to be quite a few cam failures attributed to factory lifters. I have listed below some of the brands or suggestions that I have come across in my searches (didn't look at high dollar race lifters). Please comment which ones you would use and those you wouldn't. Please add any I missed.
Thank you!

Thank you very much! They have some good things to say about the Hylift Johnson lifters. It looks like they are an excellent alternative in a non-MDS application. Are there any suggestions for MDS replacements? Does anyone have any experience with any of the other lifters?

Crower has a 2 set now , std and short travel, I have a set hereof the short travel here but haven't used them yet, Hylift and the stock 6.1 are hard to beat for price and function.


Truth has no agenda, but those with an agenda make their own truth.
Some of us are so open minded they only see their View

Thank you very much for the reply! If you had to stay with MDS, is there a better option than stock replacements?
