If I port my heads at the same time as this will it make it easier to change the lifters?

I'm still trying to paint a picture of how all these pieces come together

Yes it's easier to do it while their off bud. Brian Tooley has a nice upgrade to the GM lifters.
Called SLR lifters (Slow Leak Down) meaning they stay pumped up longer and this helps control the valves waaaay better. Or just get the GM lifters. Then the upgrade to the SLR lifters are the morel/lunati linkbar lifters that eliminate the lifter tray and you won't have to worry about a lifter turning on you.

Hey, I've been busy. What can I say?

We discuss doing a signature build on a regular basis but so far we have always come up with somewhere else where we could use the time and money more productively. I had a Camaro SS and Toyota Supra but sold them both to get something else. Been having a hard time pulling the trigger. Too much to choose from. I have my eye on a C7 right now.

Where's your shop at? I'll swing by to check out that C7 on my way to the Fest next year! You sell all this 5th gen stuff and you sold your 5th gen? Sacrilegious!

No need to front Chase, the Blue C7 at the fest was yours.

Are you gonna be at LSFest in September at Bowling Green? I've never been but as soon as I saw the flyer, I knew I had to go, lol. I also have to check out the Corvette Museum too.

Trouble maker. I had the Camaro and Supra at the same time. Sold them both. And no Mustangs in my garage. I used to own a Fox body 5.0 about 10 years ago though.

I wish. Yes, we will be down there Saturday. Not as a sponsor, just attending. The Corvette Museum is pretty cool. Definitely worth the time.

The address is above. We just moved in so right now it is a bit of a mess. By November the place should be in much better shape. Stop on by.

How about a read on FI cams?
I know less overlap holds boost better...I also know less intake duration is needed on a supercharged car because we are forcing air in. I'm picking a cam for a centrifugal blower so I'm not after peak power as much as I am midrange since my converter stalls around 3600.

I'm interested in FI cam info as well! Is there any difference between the type of blower and also if you have a A6 or a M6 as far as how a cam will perform?
