I just recently acquired a set of Edelbrock E street heads for a decent price. I currently have a competition cam Pt# 35-304-8 cam. Edelbrock states that with these heads you can only use a flat tappet cam.
I've been reading...
The lift on the e heads can't exceed 0.550" of lift. My cams are max 0.533" lift on intake and exhaust. I know, thats pushing it... I've read of cams with 0.510" lift breaking valve springs.
BUT theoretically, this should work.... Theoretically..
I've also read that by replacing he valve springs with something like: http://www.jegs.com/i/K-Motion/571/K-750/10002/-1
will give me the ability to use my cams. Because these springs are good for .600" lift. I believe.
My question is, if i decide to go this route, do i need anything other than springs and valve seats???
I've had someone tell me I'd need new lifters, new push rods, as well as springs and seats.
I should add i haven't installed my cam yet. (been waiting to find a set of good heads for the right price.)
Any input is greatly appreciated.
