To run the rpm a cam in the 250 degree @ 0.050" lift range is going to use, you are going to want all the stiffness you can get. Splayed caps would be a given for me. You might get away w/factory 4-bolt cap arrangement w/good caps and aftermarket fasteners, but the wider register that the splayed caps can give is a real plus IMO.

Those Milodon caps look beefy. I looked them up and they are $230 and come with bolts.

Thanks for your suggestions.
