    Are you running oem push rods? That spring kit, is the same price that Patroit sells them also. Thats sweet, you get springs, titantium retainers, seats, locks and seals. With that much savings put the rest of the money into roller rockers, harlens, scropions, yella tera

    that kit will work well, I highly recommend getting chromoly hardened pushrods though, and while everything is apart for the cam swap you might as well put in a new timing chain and ported oil pump. these items are a little bit of insurance for your new cam basically. I know you are not looking to do them but I would honestly rethink that thought though. You dont want one of those items going bad on you, especially after putting in a bigger cam. Just my $.02

    Since you are saving so much money you should buy the oil pump, timing chain and pushrods. Do it now and you won't have to pay extra labor. That is what a guy at my local shop told me. He also told me it would be a good idea to wait until I had some heads as well and that wouldn't cost any extra either.

    Just a thought.
    Hope it helps.

    there is a cam install kit from texas speed and performance I was going to get it has all new gaskets and what not. If you get it you will still have to get the spring kit too. I dont want you to think it comes with all that stuff too. It is basically a kit that would replace all the gaskets and a few bolts that you would remove to get the old cam out I believe. check it out on thier website. Sorry I didnt answer that question first time.
