hi there, starting my first swap, putting a y8 head on a y7 block for a mini me swap. the head needed a new cam so i bought a stage 4 cam with springs and retainers off skunk2, wondering what problems i may encounter or what other parts i should purchase before throwing the head onto the block.
the old motor that was on the head i bought spun a rod bearing before i purchased, is that a concern if not using that block?
thank you very much if you can help please do!

Clean/flush all oil passages through head, inspect for debris and/or worn cam journals/caps for evidence of metal having passed through at some point.

Do you have a tuning solution? Or intake/exhaust/header mods to accompany the cam? That's a higher level cam to attempt just "dropping it in". The car might run shitty or not show any meaningful gains without accompanying airflow mods and a good tune.
