I did 2 engine tear offs with them and they looked good after inspection. No "star-like "scratches to the outside. Like a Fp lifter looks...

 Does anyone have a list of which lifters to choose/avoid? (and the weights, if known...)

there are not that many bad lifters around, but there is a certain lot of people that reckon SCAT lifters suck, though others have run them without any issues.
mahle and febi lifters are fine, lube-a-lobe SCATs are better than normal SCAT.
just pay attention that web cams are more picky on lifters than engle cams.

jordy, hit me up on your ideas!  Wink

There are even those who dont blaim the lifters at all, and they use whatever... and never has a problem.
If you are going to install whatever springs at whatever springpressure combined with a real streetable cam, you need the best lifters money can buy. I would then go ceramic.

All cams have nearly the same material and hardening. We never had problems with any cam , web, pauter and engle. Only the lifters have been the problem , exept our german steel !

I never tested a cams hardness . A lifter must have the right material and hardness. I never had a cam problem with my lifters , but with all others you can see first pitting on the lifter and after that the cam goes flat . EVERY engine i get with aftermaket lifters have pittings on the lifter or both , flat cam and, up to broken lifters . It depends on how long the engine was running.
