Info

Rhoads V-Max lifters increase low-end torque and engine vacuum up to 50% more than original Rhoads lifters. They also rev higher, making them ideal for racing classes with vacuum rules. V-Max lifters are fully adjustable and require an adjustable valvetrain.

Typical vacuum increases range between 3 to 5 inches at idle when used with bigger cams. Duration is reduced between 5 and 20 degrees at .050" lift depending on the adjustment. As the rpm increases, so does the lift and duration. Full restoration takes place at approximately 4000 rpm.
