    Did the cam not come with push rods? Given its an LS i believe the heads are fairly easy to slip off and freshen them up, compared to a 304.

    I've seen the Americans building 1000hp 4l60e's, i will be happy with half that power at the rear wheels.

    You might want to see if Harrys Gearboxes will build your trans. Its unlikely he will take on the job as he is not accepting new jobs but he may. Getting him on the phone is a bastard though.

    I wouldn't trust anyone else in the north of the state. If Harry won't take it on you need to look south. I have a trans tech in Launceston but I wouldn't trust him to build a trans and especially to the spec you need it.

    The cam is a used one and has only done about 5000k's, didn't come with pushrods.

    Cam won’t come with pushrods. You need to measure with an adjustable ‘checker’ pushrod upon assembly and order the right length. Ls’ are considerably more difficult to work on than the 304. Although the earlier (vn-vs) commodores are a pos to work on due to a very tight engine bay.

    Thanks mate I'll buy one of those adjustable pushrod checkers, I've never worked on a vn-vs 304 before but I did own a vh with a 308 and that was a pita to work on.

    Your better off getting the kit yourself, check out the parts list in the street and strip kit on pro built automatics site, those parts in that kit won't be cheap locally.
