    It's a lot more work to get to the lifters... Gotta pull the heads. I'm running the comp cam 850's in mine and I heard the LS7 is a good upgrade too. If you're high milage, and a lifter is collapsed, I would also change the O-ring on the oil pump pick up tube. It can be done through the front cover.
