Default Pushrods with cam

With a stage 1x Intense cam will stock pushrods be fine? If not which are needed?

I'm running stock pushrods with my S1X cam; I don't plan on upgrading them till next spring or summer when I have even more plans for this motor

I thought I had that in my sig...

I'm running the CompCams 105 springs with a JP Performance timing set. Which I think Boosty, Rogue are too.

No need to apologize I forgot to even put it in my sig (I'll add it in a few minutes.)
Yeah with the Manley 150s would be for a more aggressive cam, not to mention you would probably need to double roller chain and to run a double roller you would need to remove your balance shaft inside the motor.

My Cam/Valve train setup is as follows.

S1X cam
CompCams 105 springs
Manley retainers (needed for clearance on stock heads)
Stock Pushrods
Stock Rocker arms
Stock Heads (but that should change in the spring)
JP Performance timing set

You'll be setting yourself up perfectly for a 1.8 RR/pushrod package with the stage 3 heads
