    I had a set too and they were fine.

    Only thing is I snapped a con rod (Nothing to do with the followers) so cant comment on long term reliability

    Ffoeg's right, i've got a set of them in my engine at the moment.

    I had a problem with a couple of them though.

    The inside's of one totally collapsed and another one was slightly dodgy.

    I emailed the fella and told him about it and he sent me 5 lifter's so i could get it sorted.

    I had a very slight ticking after getting everything back together but nothing compared to what it was like with the fubar'd one in.

    The ticking has gone now though, totally silent.

    I used the same ones - you can do that on a 2.2 as they have roller followers, not plain ones

    thats a little concerning but he did sort it out. so overall are you happy with them and how long have they been in you car for now.

    i emailed him about the quality and this was his reply=

    The quality is very good mate, in fact there are only 2 manufacturers that make these parts so chances are they are Vauxhall but in a different packet with a different number stamped on them, I understand though if your concerned but check out their website FAI - www.faiauto.com if your still not sure get the Vauxhall ones, cheers for your enquiry.

    I supply racing teams in Sweden and Denmark with these lifters so I have no worries about them.
