Question Crane Cams / throttle body

Has anyone here installed the Crane cams (193-0010) or a larger throttle body in their PT yet? I'm considering these as the next mods for me since I don't think turbo or s/c is realistically in the budget. Do new cams require new followers, springs, and lash adjusters? I think so, but not sure....
I know Howell Automotive will enlarge a throttle body for you on a two week turnaround.
Just wondering how's the driveability and how the ECU might respond to these changes. Also, if there might be any issues with passing emmisions. I'm looking for some more HP without it being too obvious to anyone who might open the hood....... (nudge, nudge, say no more!)

I suggest you contact Bob Stockum -
He's been around before there were PT Turbos, and has done wonders building bullet-proof and powerful PT engines.

I looked through the member's and didn't see Bob Stockum. There's a Bob S, but he's listed as a newbie. Is he a member here under another name?

Thanx - Win
