    You will want to upgrade your valvesprings and pushrods for sure.

    I have an awesome suggestion. When you return from Iraq you will be filling out a travel voucher which pays you a certain amount per day from while you were over there. It will come out to over 1000$ of free money. Use that plus an extra couple hundred bucks and by a set of patriot heads while you are at it. Cam only is ok but Heads and Cam is deadly.

    eh well, i guess that travel voucher thing only works if you are in the army and will be there about a year, so if you arent disregard that part and buy heads anyways.

    I'm in the air force and we have travel vouchers but i'm only going to be gone for a couple of months so my voucher isn't that much we get $3.50 a day plus my fly pay and hazared duty pay and seperation pay all of that togather is what i'll be using for the cam and the instalation. maybe some heads depends on voucher amount.
