Application: 65 Corvair-Porsche 997 trans, LS4 engine. I have the stock ecu reprogrammed to not run DOD, non smog tune, automatic trans deleted. I'll be adding an ls2 intake, and headers.

According to this:

I'll be getting a lift variation of .008" from the non DOD to DOD cams.

With the stock baseline of 303hp, plus the power adders, I'll be on target of how much HP I want to run. So ideally I'd like to stick to this cam.

If I ran stock lifters on the DOD lobes, do you think I'd notice that much of a difference? I understand a stock ECM will throw a code, but under the circumstances would it matter for me? I'm just really not a fan of those DOD lifters.

Im not positive, but i dont think you can mix and match dod parts. Ive at least not heard of anything like that with the g8 crowd
