    Need new pushrods?

    I installed Patriot stage 2 heads and an ms3 cam. The heads came with ti valves and dual spings so I know those are fine. I'm wondering though if I need stronger pushrods.

    Any opinions?

    Well the motor isn't even in the car yet, which is why I asked now. I'm using stock height gaskets, so do I get the stock size rods? And what is the rods stock height

    Call TSP and make sure they wouldn't recommend a slightly longer one. Some aftermarket cams have a smaller base circle.

    Get pushrods and put them in while the engine is out. Its one less thing to worry about down the road.
