If using Common Rail lifted with larger head, make sure it clears the fuel pump lobe #5 on 12V engines. CR blocks should be okay but you should still check. If your gear is not pressed on all the way, the lifters could touch. Extra clearance may be required with aftermarket connecting rods. Drop-in cam is applicable in MOST cases, you MUST check clearances. Especially if a head has been planed, block decked, valve recessions..etc. Always check clearances before starting.
