    i have the 224 with 581 lift.
    youll need new springs, retainers and push rods.
    its also a good idea to put in a ls6 oil pump and ls2 timimg chain while everything is apart

    IF my memory is corect any cam bigger than 220/220 duration on less than a 112 Lsa will be a problem at inspection if they sniff the tailpipe.You want to be sure so you don't have to change cams twice.

    A cam with a over lap of 0* or less is supposed to be able to pass inspection
    I run a 238/242 .605/.610 110LSA and I have LS6 heads in the works but I think my cam is very streetable as in no surging, dieing, and will start with the A/C on and stay running. Jason at Extreme Performance in OKC did a great job and nailed the tune.

    a 224 cam with a 112 has 0* of overlap and on a 114lsa it is -4* so you should be good
