Will stock springs be OK if I limit RPM? I want thump sound at low RPM only and never go over 3500 RPM I have stock 1967 283 in ratrod. Powerglide. Want to keep cost low. Don't care about extra power. I never race. Will keep RPM below 3500, will the Thumper make the rough cool sound?

This cam has a basic RPM range of 200-5800 and works best with a 2000+ converter. It should work fine with a 5 speed tranny as well

Yes this will allow the use of vacuum boosted power brakes. You may need to add a vacuum canister to help out with volume however since this camshaft will have close to the minimum amount of vacuum required to operate the brake booster.

Not to be confused with standard "passenger" car bearings, Clevite's P-Series is their oldest line of premium high performance bearings.

COMP Cams 81216 High Energy Chevy Hydraulic Lifters
(Part #28281216)
                        

High Energy Hydraulic lifters have a patented constant orifice metering valve that precisely meters oil to the rocker arms. Continuous contact between the metering valve and pushrod seat is maintained, eliminating excessive oiling at high engine speeds. The pushrod seat is made of a special powdered metal iron alloy that is heat-treated for strength and wear resistance.

In addition, High Energy Lifters have a lightweight check valve disc that allows for quicker response, which results in increased engine speed before valve float. This check valve disc also maintains added control at all engine speeds and loads.

COMP Cams High Energy Hydraulic Lifters also contain a longer piston than conventional hydraulic lifters, which provides more load bearing surface and increases lifter longevity.
