Jake raby does but you would have to buy an entire engine to get those.

NO break-in needed with SCHUBECK ceramics and can be used over and over with different cams....

It's the same with the Tool Steel lifters, I have a set of Udo Beckers TS lifters, that when I fired the motor up for the first time, I just let it idle away no break-in.

I also have a set of the ceramics, but the bad thing about ceramics, they don't handle too much spring pressure, and is why I haven't used them yet.
