Some people get away with using the ls6 springs, but for piece of mind I'd get a decent dual spring like the patriots. Stock length pushrods will work f fine, but I believe a slightly different size is best for that cam. Don't remember off the top of my head.
Hank, am i looking at the wrong springs? the ones i found on scoggin dickey were $188...

-Thanks for the length on the pushrods too! i am ordering some comp cams hi-tech one piece push rods.
you guys otta look at the ls6 cam this way as far as rpm peak, if you're shifting at 6500 and the cam is peaking tq at say 5800, well that'd be saving someone's *** in the detonation dept cuz detonation happens at peak tq, so if you're revving on past that point, than you're pushing away the chance of detonatiing the engine. point is dont cam for peak tq at your peak rpm, if you do, better run the best fuel you can get your hands on.
If you are going to run very high boost, I'd go ahead and get a dual spring. If it's only moderate boost I would run the PAC1218 or 1518. Give us a call and we will give you a good deal on both some springs and the 7.425 pushrods.
