Another head/cam build question
Alright, so I finally almost have enough money to do my heads and cam build. I'm also getting an LSX intake and TB, LT headers, oil pump, timing chain, etc, all the essentials.
I'm looking at tsp h/c package with PRC 2.5 heads and tsunami cam. Its a 235/240 .648/.609 111 LSA. Comes with hardened pushrods, dual springs and titanium retainers. I have read all the sticky's and some other posts but still dont know some things
A few questions, With this set-up will I have clearance issues with the heads or any other part? Should I go with stock length pushrods(7.4)? Or a different length? Any input or suggestions would be helpful and appreciated. Thanks.

Well, since no one's got anything for me I'll just order the 7.4 pushrods and get a checker. If it's longer or shorter i will send them back and get new one's. As for the clearance issue's, I will just talk to the guys at tps and hopefully they can help out.

does TSP say it will clear on their website? i would definately clay test for PTV clearance. what is the 'cc' size of those heads? for example im running heads that are '59cc'. also, im running 7.4's pushrods for my single pattern 224 cam, but i have a feeling you may need a different size, but don't take my word on it. call them and find out.
im curious, what are your build goals for the car? why since i large cam? ever consider a custom grind cam that would be more taylored for your specific setup/build goals?
no matter, you will enjoy the results. good luck!2000 SS - The Wicked Witch: °°Cammed 'n Slammed°° 458rwhp/410rwtq

I am definitely going to call and talk to TPS before I buy anything I was just trying to get some more info from members with experience before I do. This will be my first Head/cam swap i've done.
I might go with a slightly smaller cam(low 230's) Because I just want an aggressive street car that is not my DD with occasional track visits. I realize the 235/240 is a bit big. Thanks for the info

The Tsunami isn't all that big really. I'd say good choice for a weekend car. I went with the torquer3 and wish I'd have went a touch bigger. PTV-Piston to Valve clearance. Those heads and that cam will be fine. Texas Speed will tell you what push rod should work, but you still want to check after install. The wrong length could cause lack of power or worse, engine damage. Those heads will be 64cc chambers, they may be able to mill them down a little to pick up a little more compression.
