Just had LT headers with hi-flo CATS installed and tuned. Not sure how much longer I can hold off on a blower, especially when I see cars like yours!

When this snow melts, we get some rain to wash all the salt off the roads, and I get the car home, I will be installing 3.91 gears and an ACS ZL1 hood insert.

We all know you had to wipe her down from the drooling anticipation for summer.

If you lost lifters in the same bore- the lifter bores might be garbage. Have seen that a few times.It will always chew up that lifter.

Different bores. I'm pretty sure the culprit is the PCR valve springs. Tested them and they show 129lbs on the seat, that seems kind of light for a roller cam. They are supposed to be 144lbs. I've been doing some research and it seems these springs don't last long.

It seems I've been getting around 20-30,000 out of them. I've been reading all kinds of complaints about them, more than not don't get much out of them, but then, you only hear about the failures which may actually be minimal. Most of the failures have been breakage. I have Brian Tooley's coming with the new cam. I'm still not sure what I'm doing about lifters, perhaps the GM performance lifters.
