    few questions about set up

    Sorry for all the questions but this summer or fall im loooking into a heads and cam package, hopefully going with stage 2.5 ls6 heads from tsp, im not sure on the cam i was wanting ms4 but someone told me it is shit this is not my daily driver so im not too worried on size, any thoughts of a good cam much appreciated, also what brand rockers and ratio? i was thinking adjustable harland sharp but then again what are yalls thoughts, and lifters, would ls7 lifters do good or do i need to step it up with some comp lifters? i want this to be done right any suggestions and thoughts will be much appreciated thanks clint.

    Not a thing wrong with the ms4 cam, its just more of a top end cam. I'd keep your stock rockers and do the trutton bearing upgrade to them. Go for the ls7 lifters, good parts and good price. I an still trying to decide on what heads I want to go with on mine lol pretty much you get what you pay for when it comes to heads, but I think you would be happy with a set of stock heads ported by AI.

    alright thanks, im defintely going witha tsp package to get everything in a package deal. Also witch fuel injectors i was thinking about 42lb injectors but my main question is what should i go with what is the difference between high impence and just normal fuel injectors? Im actually steering away from the ms4 i read a thread on a different forum and an employee from tsp said he reccommends checking ur valve springs every 10,xxx miles since its such a big lift so idk maybe ms3 or v3

    It all depends on how much money you have for your build whether you replace the pistons or not. But if you do replace them, go with a forged set for more durability. When it comes to the can and valve springs, yes you should check spring pressure every year you might be able to get two, three or more years out of a good set, but you do need to check the spring pressure. I honestly am blank at the moment on whether we have high, or low impedance injectors (I should know, but an blank)

    Ok I'm awake now lol you either need high impedance or if you get low impedance you need to get a resistor kit to wire inline with them
