    I would run PAC 1218 springs or COMP 918 over the LS6 springs.

    LS2 timing chain is a good piece. IMO, the chain should never be left stock (LS1). Its so cheap ~20 bucks and is such an important part.

    LS7 lifters should work fine for your application.

    Some say stock pushrods are a nice security, I personally would go hardened.

    With 120K on your oil pump right now, I would replace it with a ported LS6 or alike.

    i would love to go with the comp or PAC springs, but lack of funds only leaves me geting the ls6 springs.

    a set of comp 918's, and texas-speed hardend rods, possibly an LS6 oil pump. I would focus more on the springs/rods/pump/chain over the lifters. but thats just me.

    i did my cam swap with 150k. I did the cam, springs, rods, pump, double roller chain, and ported pump. Decided to to the lifters when heads are in the near future. I would give TSP a call and see what they say about everyting. A professional opinon never hurts (IMO)

    The ls6 spring will be just fine for what you are doing and will last for a long time. The hot cam has fairly lazy lobes and isnt a real aggressive cam.
