Options after you mix up lifters

Hey guys. Halfway done my first S52 teardown and one of my buddys who works at a reputable German car shop assured me lifter orders didn't matter.

Later found out order was paramount. $600 in new INA lifters is a bit unattractive.

Someone more knowledgeable suggested measuring and reweighting the valvetrain. Any pros that can chime in? Any cheaper lifters available for our motors?

I wouldn't worry. I think it is just to keep them with the cam lobe that they had worn with. It isn't a weight thing unless the engine is completely balanced.

Hm... might give it a try. I'm buying new valves anyways but I guess it's the cam lobe and lifter that are "supposedly" paired.

The lifters are all the same.. You think BMW measured the lifters before they went into the motor? Because they sure didn't.

Throw them in.
