1. Yes.
2. The LS2 timing cover has nothing to do with deleting the DoD.
3. Why get a drop-in cam and then change valve springs? If you're going to be changing springs, why not get a more capable cam?

the ls2 has the cam sensor on the timing cover thats gonna be needed when delete the dod cam and why would anyone reguild a engine with the same valve springs? and this is a daily driver not a hot rod or race vehicle so the cam i picked is great for what i want to do

If the engine has DOD it already has the late timing cover with cam sensor. One look would tell you that.

To fully delete DOD you need 8 more std. lifters, a full set of lifter trays, and an LS3-type valley cover.

I THINK the PCV system is the same between DOD/non-DOD engines. So no PCV changes as far as I know.
