Take it from me, whether you're doing the install or somebody else is, MAKE SURE pushrod length is actually measured and verified before ordering. Incorrect pushrod length will fail lifters and...

I can afford the Mishimoto as well but, there's no sense overpaying for something so basic in construction and function. When e85 conversion kits first came on the market, they were well over $400....

That was pretty much how I went about my build. I started off with headers/exhaust, CAI, and ported IM/TB. It basically opened up my engine's air pathway. Allowed more air in and to flow out. I...

I liked the original 5th gen tail lights. I especially liked the afterburner modded ones but, never saw a reasonably priced kit that could be easily executed. Is that because I'm a purist? No. ...

Yes, verify what you have received are actually LS7 lifters. Once I received the correct lifters and verified preload with an adjustable pushrod, the pushrods were perfect. 7.85 is dead-on.
