just a little info with examples from LNENGINEERING of ceramic lifters from schubeck racing. If you are going to pump a bunch of money into your motor, you might want to check this out.last time i called schubeck they said they would do a set for my tr4 for $400 (i would send them a sample to copy)

The "bad lifters' that many have seen over the past several years is the result of two things...cheap, Chinese and other 3rd world parts being sold as OEM-quality and the newer oils that lack the necessary additives to protect the high-friction sliding surfaces of a flat tappet cam.

Both can be avoided by buying quality lifters from proven suppliers and using a 15W40 diesel oil with enough of an additive package to insure long lifter life.

Volumes of posts and stories have been posted on this subject everywhere ad nauseum ...

I doubt that any stock or mild performance TR engine would benefit from ceramic lifters. Not that they may not have a place in racing...
