Pushrod length GT40 heads

Whats up guys. I want to install some GT40 heads on my car. I was told I needed some hardened pushrods to be on the safe side. What Im wondering is do I need to change the pushrod length or do I just buy the same length pushrods. It has a e303 cam too if that matters?

You have to measure for correct length. Nobody is going to be able to tell you the correct length. There are plenty of how to write-ups on the internet and even youtube vids. You need an adjustable checking pushrod, a solid checking lifter, digital calipers and a sharpie.

You might get by with the stock size and you might not. Measuring is the only way to really be sure.
