FA20 Rocker Retainer Kit

I used my google skills and found no one on this forum talking about this. Seems a company in Australia https://denstoj.com.au/ has developed a rocker retainer kit for the FA20 to stop the rocker from falling out.

This video was released in April 2020

Not relevant for me at this time but seems like a simple solution to an issue people have when reving the fa20. Good to see it is available.

Nice find.

And just an FYI, if you lose a rocker, the pivot comes out of the oil galley and you lose oil pressure instantly. That's when shit really goes bad. Don't ask me how I know.

Retainer adds mass to rocker. Not a con?

Yep. I was thinking the same and why the manufacturer didn't do it.

That part of the rocker where they are adding the clip is the fulcrum, so any addition to mass would be negligible I would think.

When they respond to me, this was going to be one of my questions, seems like they're just releasing it.

Being that they're upside down, it may take a while for them to get back to me; my main inquiry was about shipping.

Also found out that AWDtuning sells "rocker stoppers" for the FA20 intended for the WRX, I have an open inquiry with them as well, but haven't heard back from Denstoj

Now if we could just find an oiling solution I would possibly keep running the FA.

Didn't Element Tuning solve it? But it was via internal modifications.
