    the MAF conversion is pretty easy, it's just taking out the wiring harness and doing it... Make sure you do get a roller cam... you could always go with a kit from someone like TrickFlow or something so you get heads, cam, intake, and all that good stuff.

    i have been gather parts to do the MAF conversion for a couple weeks now.
    but i posted the wrong cam the one i want is the same specs and all but roller cam
    and i have been thinkin about super charging or turbocharging the truck but if i can make about 350 rwhp i dont see the need to
    and there is no low end work besides it being bored out. it might have slightly higher compression than it did at stock but i dont know for sure. i had some one else deal with the guy who rebuilt and bored out my engine and rebuilt my heads.

    Oh and one more thing before i forget... IF you do end up putting a cam and stuff in that engine then it needs to be converted to Mass Air Flow instead of speed density. i did my MAF conversion on mine, but have yet to prove it works correctly. If you don't want to switch to MAF then there are very few cams that will work for you without confusing the computer. i think anything more than 110-112* LSA would confuse it IIRC.

    You do know that the cam you linked me to is flat tappet correct? i wouldn't run a flat tappet in it if your wanting to drive this truck a lot. How much power are you really wanting to make and how much other work do you plan to do to the engine other than the heads/cam? any bottom end work? higher compression? supercharger/turbo? these are all things that need concideration before choosing a cam or heads. Personally i would just throw on some GT40P heads, and a lighter hydraulic roller cam like this one... COMP Cams 35-351-8 - COMP Cams Xtreme Energy Camshafts - Overview - SummitRacing.com

    you have stock heads? I have a B303 cam, full roller engine, 1.72:1 roller rockers, and all that fun stuff. with the stock heads and intake i'm sure thats probably about all you got. you might have a might bit more if you advance the timing a little bit

    I'm not sure what kind of power it will make yet. i haven't even gotten it running yet to find out. I do have higher compression pistons and a little taken off the heads which should total to around 9.5:1 or a little more. Ported GT40P heads, cryo'd rods, ARP rod bolts, ARP head bolts, port matched upper/lower typhoon, 70mm TB, etc. i'm hoping for around 350hp on fuel only with it, but idk if i will make it or not.
