i def will keep posted and yea back pains from this car are evil taking the heads off the car they seem to be ported every thing upgraded already now i need to find out what the flow numbers are and see what springs i have in there since i need a set of springs to withstand up to .650 lift thinking of pac 1518 or the 977s if i need to get them .

Lunati has a set of VooDoo spings that handle .680 lift come as a kit for the LT1 heads for a little over 100 bux. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/LUN-73943K1LUN the ones i currently have installed on my heads shimmed to handle .640 lift and brining the spring pressure to 120# on seat.
