Heck yeah!  It was the best $40 I ever spent (even better at $25).  It's
generally a good idea to install new lifters when you change cams
(especially if it's a used cam).  Use lots of engine assembly lube or
break-in lube on the lifters and cam lobes.  When you fire it up the first
time, run the engine for a couple minutes or two at 2-3k rpm's so the new
lifters can develop the wear pattern of the cam.  Enjoy!
