    As long as your running stock components you should be fine, if you cam the car you'll have to upgrade both the pushrods and springs.

    No everything new, coming off a vette. Yeah I plan on swapping cam when I do the heads, so I guess I'll just get the 243's!I want to port and polish the heads, how much should I take off ? going with TorquerV2.
