    GM water pump gaskets, GM timing cover seal, GM front seal, and GM harmonic balancer bolt. And depending on how many miles are on the car new lifters and trays, which then means new head bolts and head gaskets.

    Which then means taking off the cylinder heads, exhaust, manifold etc........ (prepare yourself for this project if it's your first time!)

    lingenfelter oil pump is supposed to flow more and last i saw costs around the same price. otherwise just be careful and dont try to rush anything.

    My advice is to skip the investment into the hood and get some cylinder heads. You need to get the SCR up for that cam.

    i was thinkin that also hard choice ..need heads but want a hood i hate the reg hood...but i am really thinkin bout maybe just getting heads first....what heads would u think would be best for that cam to get the most hp???? an could u run nos with it? u think it would break over 500 hp with just ms4 cam,92 fast intake,longtubes an heads?
