AFR?s LS1 is a direct bolt on, no special parts required. Structural features like Air Flow Research?s trademark 3/4? thick head deck, a must for blown and nitrous applications, reinforced rocker stud bosses and thick wall runners provide unparalled durability.

Note: Hydraulic roller cams typically experience valve float at 6000-6200 RPM because of their fast ramp rates. AFR suggest you upgrade your springs to AFR part #8019, 1.250 O.D. double with dampener valve spring with higher pressures(145lbs on seat, 390+lbs at .600 lift) to reduce the chances of valve float at higher RPM?s with the #8019 spring AFR recommends Comp Cams R style lifter.
