Default What all is needed for cam install (and yes i tried to search!)

The search feature never works, so here's my story. I'm ready to do a cam swap, but need to find someone in the Central Valley area that'd do the install for me for a good price. Here's my list I'm going to order soon, let me know if anyone has anything to add that I should get and tell me why to get it. Oh and also, remember I am in Ca so this is the cam I chose. If there is anything better that would pass smog 100% of the time in Ca then by all means let me know. Maybe a custom cam?

Thunder Racing LS1 Cam Swap Package w/ Single Valve Springs Includes:
- TR220/220-114 cam
- Comp Cams 26918 Valve Springs
- Thunder Racing Pushrods (7.400)
- using stock retainers

Also, I remember there being a "cam install kit" somewhere that had all the gaskets needed etc, where do I buy that?

You should be ok with that cam to pass smog as long as your tune is good. Have patience with the install as I am guessing it is your first time. It really isnt that difficult if you know your way around the tools and the engine. You will need some type of tool to hold the lifters in place. Here is the install guide for you. If you follow it word for word you will be fine. It is a great write-up. http://www.ls1howto.com/index.php?article=23

Can a mod move this to the LS1 internal section, cuz i think I accidently put this thread in the wrong spot. Also, I am looking for someone in Cali (within a few hrs of fresno hopefully) to do the install for me...
