Which Morels are you talking about. They make several, ranging from less than $400 to well over $1000 a set.

I suspect that a 4713 would work well for you, being a strip only car. I've heard that they are better quality than a Comp 838 but lack pin oiling.

The 5436 is supposed to be a excellent lifter for the price.

Doing more with less, or something like that.

Spring pressure and how aggressive the lobe is will dictate how long they last I had over 400 passes on my 838 and I am at 262 passes with my current set. I will tell you the more expensive lifters are rebuildable the only thing that sucks is you have to remove the heads to change them. I will invest in more expensive lifters with my next set probably Isky, lunati or the higher end morels.
