    with that size cam you shouldn't need anything but a tune (get after market pushrods) and that's about it
    ..well what is the rest of the specs on the cam

    ANY aftermarket cam requires new valvesprings. Hands down.

    What is the duration on the cam? Seems just a hair bigger than the stocker.

    Any cam with such low lift isn't worth the swap imo. You don't need to swap the heads for a cam swap.

    Thats a pretty dinky cam to swap in. Not worth tearing your motor apart IMO. Whats the other specs on the cam?

    I was looking into a cam change for a long time and my goals are to maintain all the drivability and gain some hp which I'm guessing is what your'e trying to accomplish... well I can tell you right now the minimum you want to do for a cam is a TR224... good gains and will drive just fine...

    TR224
    Valve Springs
    Titanium Retainers
    Pushrods

    if you have the money for
    LS6 ported heads.

    Edit: TR 224 specs are 224/224 .563/.563 114LSA very street friendly cam
