So I’ve sent the heads to get done, cleaned all surfaces , and ordered head gasket kit, plugs, plug wires. I’ve inspected the lifters and they look okay except for a couple look slightly worn. I took off the valley cover and looked at the cam, looks good to me. but after some research I think someone already did the AFM/DOD delete on this. All my lifters look exactly the same no different. @TollKeeper , I took this pic from your post and I have no spring on top of my lifter here , only springs are the ones under the rockers that I sent to get rebuilt. Also can I use these new headers from Jegs? My drivers side has a leak and these look good for a replacement. Thanks for all the guidance here and after some research I really see that this DOD is a piece of shit system.
