Lifters in EF

I've got a bit of a problem fella's!

i just did a lifter in my EF 6 cylinder. Its absolutely shot, so im gonna put a full new set of lifters in it.

would a set of enhanced performance lifters do anything to the power of the car, and how much would i be looking at.

i put an ef rocker set on my ea, to get the lifters out you would have to force them out because there held in by a plastic retainer at the top.
6 out of 12 in the set i bought came out freely because the retainer is made from a plastic that got hard and crumbly from the oil. had to scrape all the plastic out b4 i put them back.

mate, i would recommend taking it into your nearest ford dealership. prob only about $100 in labour, its a lot safer and easier, no hassles then.
