All the lift the springs and valve stem/retainer clearance will allow. For E7's with stock springs = .450" lift. IOW..... total valve lift has nothing to do with possible PtV clearance issues = http://sbftech.com/index.php/topic,57.0.html

Thank you Thank you
PTVC was waht I was referring to as Trouble, I plan on buying spring but I do not want to by a cam with too much lift.  I know I will be under .500"  I just don't want to get a broom handle if I could get a little more lift especially on the exhaust side. 

I will Double check When I get ready to buy a cam.  Untill then I will read and post any questions.
