Hi Guys yes another newbie pain in the a** here.

Reguarding the cam section it mentioned the wade Cams you need shims or a modified rocker which they offer.

Few questions about this.

1. With the shims do they go behind the lash adjuster in the rocker arm?

2. Is it recommended to opt for the rocker gear that wade offer and how much generaly is it?

When I replaced the head the lash adjusters fell out of the rocker arms when walking over to bolt the rocker back on the car. I simply oiled them and placed them back in but when they bleed up one must of been slightly out of alignment and it caused the rocker arm to shatter and my second set which is seconded hand has had similar problems. So I am thinking maybe wades option might be the go.

I've got Pacemaker 4499s, Pex 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust, high flow metal cat, CMS stage 3 head/2a cam and a Territory intake pipe for my EL Fairmont Ghia, is there any other easy mods I should be doing to get the last few improvements before the car goes in for a tune? Does it need a bigger throttle body, or is the factory one fine? Anything else you can think of or am I at the best price/performance right now?

Thanks much.

Just a question but has anyone here tried the hooker aeroflow mufflers from www.vpw.com.au ?
I had these on dare i say it my ss commodore and found they gave a great dfference in low down torque compared to the lukey muffler that was on it plus they sounded amazing and there wasnta hint of drone anywhere. Cost wise i think they are only $89-$100 delivered
