both the 1673 and 977b will work without head work or h/d springs...

you will get more power if you do head work, but its not nessesary.
the only thing needed is a second set of lifter shims..

Troyman said it best.

Nothing against wade or anything I hear they are fine cams, but...

If you're interested I have a crow cam from my ea/el i'm willing to part with. comes with vernier gear. I was told by crow cams it was the biggest cam available at the time without changing any other gear like valve springs or getting the computer recalibrated.
Beauty of this cam is it's a billet cam and doesn't need another set of lifter shims to operate.

PM me if you're keen and i'll dig out the specs sheet.
