To me the T4 paulter rocker is junk, it doesn't have correct oiling IIRC. I know Jake was playing with them trying to make them work, don't know if he ever did.

Honestly the stock (modified) rocker works best, everything works correctly, never an issue,
I have similar 2.6L T4, 78X102mm, engine in my'67 bug. I use the stock modified rocker with real porsche adjusters and I use T1 dual springs, 163/86b web cam, ceramic lifters, CrMo retainers, hardened keepers and Manton pushrods.

it would be nice if somebody, somewhere made a decent rocker with a greater ratio.

and, Not to hijack, but are ceramic lifters available anywhere?

l’m making a 1.6 chromoly rocker for my 3.1S.
l have a few random Pauter rockers from sets that have had a rocker break. The self oiling Pauters were junk.
l broke 3 of them on Beth’s engine in 4 weeks. They can’t stand a roller cam at all!

Nowhere.
You need to set geometry yourself for optimum performance.
As you get to better parts and more power, getting the right tolerance built in is more important.
