    Will the LS6/LS3 'Blue' valve springs work with a Comp Cams 212/218 .522/.529 114LSA (p/n 54-412-11) with 7.4in pushrods? It will all be going into a 5.3 in an 07 Sierra Classic.

    Blue are good to .570 and yellow are good to .550. You're at 0.522 int./0.529 exh. lift with that cam. Do want to see what he recommends though

    Brandon, I researched and was going to run the LS6 springs with that cam. They are good to well over the lift that that cam has.

    Oh, and nice pic :crazy:

    Anthony I got your FB message but I'll reply here; I am looking at doing this swap within the month and I'll be swapping the cam, springs, retainers and seals, oil pump, gaskets, and timing chain. I'll keep everyone updated here. I'm learning as I go on this one.

    ok thank you. I want to do the same, including headers, just need to get all the parts rounded up, and was hoping to have it finished before Justin has a meet in sacramento again this January

    Start your own thread in the engine & performance section with more specs on your truck and what you want to spend and accomplish and we can help you out.
