MDS lifters ($400 at a discount parts house)
Springs ($100+)

The 6.4 has the SAME:

timing chain
spring retainers and locks
rocker arms

Anyone know if the head bolts are TTY (torque to yeild)? That would require new bolts.
Why do you "need" non mds lifters? And the MDS plugs for these motors are a no no.... If one was to put this cam in a motor then they would have a diablo tuner which allows you to disable mds no need for plugs or new lifters...

One thing that you would also need is a cam phase limiter from comp cams. Without a cam phase limiter you will surely see piston to valve clearance issues!
