head gaskets & pushrods
well i just bought ls6 heads from an 07 ls2 corvette and am doing a head cam install with al the goodies, oil pump, cam chain, springs, and pushrods. I have two questions i need confirmed before i order the rest of my parts;
1) which head gasket do i need, i know the ls6 chamber is slightly smaller and i would like to find a gasket that will also increase compression. From what i have read a stock 2000 camaro has ahead gasket thickness of .057, so would a gasket of .040 be a good idea with a cam around .570 lift?
2)since i bout the ls6 heads off anls2 motor do i need different push rod lengths or is the 7.400 the correct size to get?
Any more tips, tricks or good quality parts to get will be appreciated.2000 auto camaro

What are your plans with this motor. Without posting your intentions the correct head gasket can't be posted unless you want some stock hasket.
The chamber size of the head doesn't matter it is determined by the bore size. You could have a 48cc chamber the deck on the head is still going to be flat.Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

Also, order an adjustable pushrod and measure for pushrods. Order them as the last part. This will ensure that the lifter preload is set correctly.
