    Cam install complete!!!

    Well after 36 hours of taking my time and fabricating my own dual valve spring compressor and balancer install tool the cam swap is complete. Cam choice was a custom grind Comp cam XER .598/.604 lift, 228/232 duration on a 110+4 LSA. Used PRC dual valve springs w/ titanium retainers. Also installed the senders for water temp and oil pressure to get those gauges working. All in all it was a good experience. Reading though old threads helped a TON!! Thanks for yall's help. I will post videos as soon ad my buddy e-mails them to me.

    As of now it has a bare bones tune so that I can drive it easily and I'll be getting the full tune/ dyno time next week.

    I did it at my house. It's really not that bad with the right tools and taking your time.

    It's dumped dybomax bullets under the car now. Got it done today. I'm going to have a good fiberglass buddy of mine make me a filler panel to replace the rear bumper insert. Thinking flat black with color matched GTO on it.
