    Not only that, but how do you expect a H/C package to perform when you're running stock manifolds?? Its going to choke the life out of it, you'd probably be sacrificing damn near 40WHP running stock manifolds over LT's with an agressive H/C package. Even if you're just adding a cam its highly reccommended that you have LT's first, you can have all the lift and duration you want but you can't move any more air if you have a huge restriction on the exhaust side of the motor. So you'd go through all the trouble of an H/C install only to have the motor choke out on the top end, and you'd still end up having to install LT's.
    That's what I said.
