      Considering you can easily push the lifter down with a finger, your engine is missing, and you can clearly hear its internal mechanical noise, it's a lifter man, not exhaust.

      Trust me, was just in your shoes. Had 14 lifters that would support my weight and 2 that compressed with a screwdriver. I couldn't move the pushrod cup with my finger at all.

      Stop by any parts store you want, ask to examine a lifter for your car and feel how tight the spring is in the push rod cup..

      Anything after 2004 has equal length.

      Im guessing the lifters faiked because they couldnt handle the 400+lb open pressure springs?

      What are the cam specs? Guys are putting grossly oversized cams into literally stock 4.8/5.3/6.0 trucks with just springs and pushrods and spinning them to the moon with zero issues.

      I think you just had a bunk lifter to start with.

      What I found looking. I'm right on the edge with my single PAC1218 springs.

      That cam is going to beat the hell out of your valveguides, that's a LOT of lift. I would say contact TSP and see what they would do to make your valvetrain last, but unless you own a racetrack or youtube channel you won't get a reply from them.

      That's normal. You should soak them in motor oil over night before you install them.

      Little bit of handy garage knowledge, 16 lifters will fit in a quart bottle of oil.

      Finally pulled one head cam looked good as i spun it around. But my valves ever so lightly hit the pistons. Good thing is the valves arent bent and seat fine

      Always a good idea to check PTV clearance when swapping cams. That’s why I asked way back in the beginning of this thread. There is a ton of information out there on how to do it. The springs etc are cheap.
