i would say if you had good set of heads to get the e-303 or the f-303, but if your running nos, you might wanna talk to lloyd about that.

Doug, from what I understand if you have roller lifters you dont need to replace them with a cam change. I always do because I like to be careful. When running on the juice I always had good luck with the E-303. I also know alot of guys that shot their cars with a B-303 and they loved it. I like the FRPP cams myself.

i had my engine rebuilt and don't have 5,000 miles on the rebuild yet, would i still need to do new valve springs and lifters when installing the new cam (probably the E303)
