Brakes, sub-frame connectors, aftermarket rear control arms, shocks and springs if desired.

Since you already have the Edelbrock Performer intake, I would go with the Edelbrock Performer aluminum heads and use their cam that is matched to that combination.

I realize this is all personal opinion, but I would never run any type of spray on any vehicle I'll ever own. I just don't feel like the risk is worth the reward. I've seen guys completely destroy $10k+ motors that were built for it. If I had the money to rebuild a motor at any given time maybe it'd be a different story, but after tearing down a few motors that have been sprayed it looks like someone literally took a hammer to the internals.

I won't run it either, but properly tuned and maintained along with NOT spraying more than your engine can handle and it is safe enough to use.

What you saw were the effects of improper tuning and detonation.
