Pushrod length

I'm about to order an Ls3 conversion and a Nightfury cam package, I was wondering what length pushrods I should get. And was wondering how decent the driveability is, I've heard plenty of videos of the nightfury cam and it sounds amazing.

If you're getting the NF cam, why don't you contact Nick or Shawn and ask them directly, being as that they are the subject matter experts? Pushrod length should always be measured, but they know that cam better than anyone, and can tell you exactly what size you'll need.

I'm just saying I've seen people on here with l99's with nightfury, and that package has a range of different lengths, how do I know what length to get if there are more than one option.

That's what I'm trying to explain to you. The correct way to install the right length pushrod in your cam setup, is to measure. That is the only "correct" way to do it without guessing, but Lethal Racing (since they are ones who designed the cam) have done 100's of installs on LS3 and L99 cars, and can tell you exactly what size you need.

It's really not rocket science to send them a PM or call them and ask that question. Or you could ask someone else who may have needed a different size, order the wrong size, and potentially install the wrong size pushrod in your setup.

When you order the NF package they come with the kit. Call Lethal speak to Shawn, he will know what you need and he's a great guy to talk to.
