if you're try'n to get more out of the truck. and it's a budget..
I'll save you some cash..
if you are not willing to change the valve springs (100-150.oo) when you change the cam..
save your money.. really, don't bother..
as the truck will slow as the valvetrain floats.. AND can bend a valve or if you are really rally lucky, drop a valve..
you're on a budget for a reason.. I get that..
but whats cheaper.. the valve springs or rebuilding the heads because the valves are now bent? and STILL having to replace the springs..
just because the engine was free.. DO YOU HAVE THE MEANS TO REPLACE IT, when you kill it? thats not what I'd call a budget build.. but it's your truck/engine
good luck
