    What all will I need?

    I'm getting ready to install some 243 heads on a 2001 z28 that has a Texas speed MS4 cam and all the bolt-ons. The heads have had a valve job, pressure tested and were milled .005. I want to get everything I need so the project will go as smooth as possible. I know I'll need:
    Head bolts (ARP)?
    Head gaskets-can someone recommend some good ones?
    Header gaskets
    LS7 lifters
    Pushrods ( I'll need to figure the length)
    I may get the Comp cam rocker arm upgrade depending on what I find when I get that far in it.
    Can anyone think of anything else or some name brands for the things listed above or part numbers?

    plenty of people are running stock rockers with full builds so unless urs are very high mileage u can just save the money and stick with the stockers.

    if u have enough money id go with a bigger intake and injectors just my 02

    Milled heads and an MS4??
    That cam already pushes the limits of piston-to-valve clearance.

    I had them milled 5 thousandths to clean them up and be sure I have a flat surface, do you think there will be a problem with the clearance?
