Gotta provide year and opti type being used. There is no concern with the spider tray.

Not a lot of choices if you want to keep the water pump drive. If I remember correctly, the LT4 HD timing set is the best you're going to be able to do.

The factory lifter setup is fine.

1995 Camaro Z-28, M6, 396 stroker, Scat forged 3.875" crank, Scat Ultra Q-Lite 6" H-beams, Icon forged pistons (4.030"), splayed 4 bolt w/ARP studs, 12.25:1, AFR 210 heads (2.08"/1.6", 58cc), Comp Ultra Pro Magnum XD 1.7:1 rockers, GM847 cam (234/242 .611"/.632"), Edelbrock LT4 air-gap intake, Spec Stage 3+ clutch, Fidanza aluminum flywheel, 24x conversion, 0411 PCM, TPIS 58mm, Bosch III 42# injectors, Aeromotive 340, Kook's stepped LT's -- SOLD TO MYSTERYBIRD

I was told you can change to a vented opti by changing the timing cover but I will do what is best. The block is at Machine shop And I'm jest waiting on it to get back

If you're going to go to a vented opti, I gave you the answers in the other thread you started. The lifters I suggested in that thread will work with just about any cam. Link bar lifters are not needed in your application. The spider will work just fine for many, many miles. If you are that concerned about it, get the GM LT1 lifter/spider/keeper kit.

You could just get the MSD cap/rotor kit and cobble together the vacuum bits to make it work. But if you really want to convert to the later opti, here you go:
95+ optispark. 1104032
95+ timing chain setup CLO-9-3651X3
95+ or aftermarket camshaft (due to needing a longer pin and deeper cam snout nose) Or you can just pull the cam and have a shop yank out the pin and install the correct pin since they're a different length. Were it me, if the OEM cam is coming out - its not going back in.
95+ vacuum harness. 12555323
95+ electrical harness. 12130319
95+ timing cover. 12552426
95+ vacuum fitting. 14082470

You've used striker twice now, so I suspect its intentional. BTW - its "stroker".

Sorry about the starting a new thread i was concerned did not state intentions and the striker/ stroker must have been auto correct damn technology. The reason I started a new thread Is there was only one answer on the old one so I changed some things

Also is there a good timing set to run so I do not have to convert. I already have all the parts to do non vented opti. I will convert if need be

If you stay with a spline drive opti, you are basically stuck with using a stock type timing set...and what Dynamic 396 said.
