Hi all,

Just wondering do I need to get the car retuned after replacing the Lifters and push rods in my VE SS L98 ?? Will be going LS7 lifters.

dude you need to pull the engine and replace cam and cam bearings. The issue is the cam bearings opening up, once this happens oil pressure drops to the lifters which is why they fail.
