GrnBullitt08, these cams are going to be
a nice compliment to your car.
i didn't do it all in one session, because
i had to wait for my cams (this allowed me
to get everything prepped and ready)....if i
were to do it all over again, it would probably take
me at least 5-6 hours
good luck with the project and let us know how
you like the new hot rod sound
Hey hammeron how is evrything holding up,been on a while now. Did you ever decide to build or buy the lower engine? What Hp will these cams give you when you can crank up past the stock limits. I want to do the cams but I am still holding off to do a bunch at one time. Nice write up and good luck with it.

ordered the cams and bolts from a dealer nearby for $800
just one question before i start it though is that i noticed hammeron that you used a box wrench on the damper to keep it from moving. I'm gonna be doing this job solo so i was thinking maybe if you put it in drive and have the parking brake on maybe that would suffice to keep it from moving???? assuming there's not much slack in the drive train.
Hey when i did my UD pullies i had trouble breakin the dampner bolt because the engine kept turning. I put the car in 5th gear and it was really easy to break lose, i was very surprised. All that trouble trying to break the torque and with one simple shift i broke it in seconds. So that theory is fact, shift to 5th and the motor will not turn.
