H/C/I questions

Hello everyone!

Last year I started the process of an h/c/i swap and a few other minor modifications. During the process funds got tight so I had to put it on the back burner. I'm not ready to break back into the project and have a few questions. So far I have gt40p heads that I just got back from the machine shop to have them tanked, looked over very well and had new springs, retainers, etc.. installed. I also have an e303 cam, 1.6 TF RR, Holley systemax 2 intake, and a few other supporting mods. As i'm in the process of cleaning and re-assembly, I have a few questions. WIll I be able to use my stock length pushrods with that setup? I know the TF spring kit installed is capable of handling more lift than the ecam provides, but I wasnt sure if I would have any problem with piston clearance with the new heads? Any and all input is valued. Thanks!!

No your stock pushrods will likely not work with that setup. You will need the tool to measure your needed length and order accordingly. You should have no problems at all with ptv clearance since you're using 1.6 rockers.

You always have to measure for pushrod length. Always.

Did you measure with a solid checking lifter and get the witness marks dead center on the valvestem too?

Yep, was running into trouble because I wasn't torquing the pedestal mount rockers so it was throwing off my measurements. But after i figured that out everything went smoothly.
