    You'd at the very least want new valve springs.

    preferably L76 springs. Not LS6 springs.

    If you don't understand the specifications then you don't understand what they do.

    I understand what a cam does and the performance gains that come with it,I just cant quite decyfer the correct way to read the specs. I'm new to this kind of thing and i would rather figure this stuff out on my own and build a car than pay someone to build my car for me.

    Not sure if I should ask this here or somewhere else, but what do stock heads limit you to? I know its somewhere in the 500 range, but was curious if anyone knows exactly what lift numbers are max for stock heads.

    If you don't take the lifters out they will fall into the motor or can fall into the motor.

    I don't think there are holes to put dowel rods in to hold the lifters up but I forget.
