Lifters
Brought to you by Vigilante Performance Engineering, VPE High Performance Lifters are engineered to provide performance matched components that will install, and perform, with a minimum of frustration. VPE High Performance Lifters are available in all normal configurations, which are matched to each customers specific requirements.

Vigilante Performance provides both flat tappet and roller lifter designs. Flat lifters, which are typically found in vintage vehicles, have a relatively flat face that slides on the camshaft. Meanwhile, roller lifters have a wheel-like roller that follows the camshaft’s outline. Since the 1990’s, nearly all OHV engines have come standard with hydraulic roller lifters. Racing engines, primarily, will have either solid flat tappet or solid roller lifters. Hydraulic roller lifters can be either a link bar or stock replacement style.

Solid lifters, must have the valvetrain lash adjusted mechanically from time to time. Hydraulic lifters rely on pressurized engine oil to automatically adjust lash internally, so there’s no need for periodic adjustment.
