I have read that when doing a cam swap in an ls1 people change the lifter to ls7 design. what is the difference in these lifters over the stock ones? the only advantage i could imagine is lighter and help with pushrod and spring life because of that. or maybe stronger?

They are slightly stronger and good for little higher rpms

What they said! LS7 lifters can be spun to higher RPM's without worrying about them. Most of the time the cam you buy makes power higher. I would also get the upgraded LS2 lifter covers while you are in the motor┌∩┐(◕_◕)┌∩┐
Man: The Mods you are fighting,
they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
wouldn't want to fight them!
Me: That is why no one will remember your name!
