    Cam install

    I have a question about a cam install I have a lingenfelter GST-2 Sleeper cam and 26918-16 comp cams valve springs. Is this enough? Can I install it like this or do I need to get new retainers or can use the ones the car has now?

    I appreciate all of the input thanks in advance.

    You can use the retainers but you really should get new pushrods.

    yes you can use the stock retainers.....it wouldnt hurt to get new ones, definatly get new hardened pushrods, but running stock isnt going to hurt it either....and depending on what your LSA is, and how many miles are on your car, a ported oil pump and a new timing chain is a good idea as well.....

    I used my stock locks and retainers on my car. But I used new hardened pushrods, timing chain, Comp 918 springs, and new oil pump. My car had over 80k when I did my cam install. Then a tune.
