    What to Change with my Cam?

    I am about to change camshafts in my 2001 Z28. I have all the bolt ons and crane gold roller rocker arms. My car has 90K miles on it, I am the original owner. I have not raced the car, and it has been carefully maintained. I am changing the valve springs, retainers, oil pump(Ligenfelter), timing chain(single row, heavy duty), and all gaskets. Since this is the first time I have had the engine apart: What else should I change?
    Please note I am not changing or porting my heads at this time.

    Pushrods. Get some hardened ones.
    Otherwise it sounds like you have everything in order.


    Also a new crank bolt.

    have you thought about an underdrive pulley? As long as you have the stock one off might as well grab those few extra HP.

    Not a bad idea.
    If the heads are coming off for some reason.

    I am already running an underdrive, and a mezeire water pump. My lifters are the Crane Gold (1.8) series, they come with chrome moly pushrods. I am not doing my heads due to emission concerns. I just want to be sure I do everything while I have the engine apart.
