Re: Spent the weeks tips :)
The ef lifters fit straight onto the earlier heads, with no mods required. As for fitting the cam, remove the rocker cover, back off the chain tensioner, unbolt the chain sprocket, undo the rocker gear, and remove the cam. Then, its just a mater of putting int hte new one, and bolting it all back to gether. The only mod needed to fit the cam, is a second shim under each lifter, to maintain contact between the lifter and the valve. The reason for using the ef lifters, was that it was cheaper to buy a second hand set from a wrecker, than to fix up my ea ones. But yeah, for the money spent, a HUGE improvement in power.
Also, yeah, it is a regrind cam (hence the need for the shims). I had a spare cam at home, so they just swapped it over. However, if you dont have a spare cam/remove yours first, you just leave a deposit, which you get back when you take in the old cam.
