Will you be doing the build bud?
Your best way of knowing without a doubt is by measuring and making sure you got the right size. It's really easy.
You are milled so I'd measure or have the shop do it.

You buy the pushrods afteryou check length once you have the headsbolted you take the measurement taking into account the preload the lifters you will be using require since you already have this i wouldnt buy anymore with out measuring there is no predetermined length with custom parts

I was trying to buy up a bunch of stuff for my cam install and the shop had to tell me to stop. I was about to buy pushrods and they told me dont waste my time and money. It would be easier to let them measure and order the right ones than sending the wrong size back and replacing.

Good luck. And damn that cam is so close to the one im going with. Who specd that cam or is it off the shelf. Im very anxious to see the final numbers.
