    Pushrod Length is 7.400"

    Things also getting:

    Might as well get a pulley. You have to take the stock one off to do the cam. Shops don't charge separately for that install if done with the cam.

    Doing the install myself, Any decent prices on a pulley? If so I'll consider, let me know a good place to grab one.

    I bought a PowerBond with belts and a new bolt for $209. PowerBond is the same as an SLP Pulley. SLP hung a larger price tag that's why I went with PB. Many people like ASP also. A tad more expensive and I don't think you'll get the belts and bolt included. Could be wrong tho. Just have to call TSP and find out. I doubt there is any HP difference betweenthe two. Also, you may have a problem if you have a big sound system in your car with the addition of an underdrive pulley. I haven't heard of any but it's possible due to the slower rate of charging the battery.

    I would go ahead and get new lifters while you got the heads off.

    Well, everything added to the things I'm getting is that much more money to come up with, if you know some good lifters at a good price that'll help. Also I have a 4l60e transmission and a stall converter for sale, not sure on what stall it is tho.

    Yes. Also, the advice about new lifters should be taken seriously since your heads will come off. Stock lifters are fine. The LS2 timing chain is a MUST imo.

    He can always return it, get the money back, and get the LS2 chain for $40 or whatever it is.

    Well, I think I must reconsider what I'm getting, happens to be I need to get a new transmission anyways, so I'm thinking while I have the tranny out I just as well Put a new one in, Get a stall converter (3000 to 3500 Stall) and maybe do my gears.. Or instead of the gears depending on my money spending limit..2000 Roughly I may still plan on putting the cam in and maybe a few optional things, like timing chain, oil pump.. Let me know what I should probably do. I do have the stock 273 gears, But If I get a stall I should probably leave my gears alone for now.. Let me know if that sounds right.

    You need to make sure your stall and cam work with one another. In other words, your stall puts you into your cam power band. If you get a stall and upgrade to 3:73s your MPG will go significantly down and with it being your DD I am not sure that would be a good idea. If you are wanting to do heads/cam though, you will probably want to eventually get rid of those 2:73s however. You need to buy a good tranny cooler and a shift kit would be recommended as well with the stall.

    Already have a big tranny cooler and a shift kit. But I didn't think about it, but with going with a stall and just a cam I should get a cam that'll do good from 3000+RPM? Any suggestions on the what cam and lsa? Heard a 112 would be not good for dd..

    You probably want like a 224 or 228 duration with a 114 LSA. A 112 wouldn't be real good for a DD like you mentioned. 224/224 581/581 114 cam would be great for what your application
