Only mods I know of is, you need to install the cam bearings first.  Smile

The wallet mod. Freaking lifters are nearly as expensive as the bump stick.

If you have not installed cam bearings yet , get with Lem & get a set of "wide " cam bearings.
(IIRC, Lem told me they are the #1 Cleavland style bearing, but talke to Lem & make sure on that)

It is BEST to drill the right, (passenger), side main oil gallery to 5/8" and install lifter bushings on that side but, it is really only necessary in high RPM cases.

Bronze thrust plate, but I ran a roller with the stock cast one for a long time before I found out that was "bad". Will have to run a bronze distributor gear on a billet steel cam.

Depending on where you are, maybe Randy is a good choice for supplier also? I've gotten a few sets from him.

Wide bearings are nice,but not a necessity for a pump gas deal imo. Very Happy

With the nominal cost diff. & better support why on earth wouldn't you go with the wider ones??? fuel has really nothing to do with it...just sayin.
