And what is the biggest cam i can put in the 4.7? I do have a lot of questions.. but i know this is the right place to ask them.. thanks everyone again!
I'll defer all those questions to the resident experts, as I've never done a 4.7. I'll say this much: as long as you are asking questions, you're in good shape. When you decide you don't need any more help, you're probably gonna get in trouble.

Good luck!
