    I just pulled one yesterday......by myself The a/c condensor has to move up and out of the way. After you do it see if you can figure out how I did it alone. Bungee cords are your friend.

    The directions are on ls1howto.com. It explains in detail how to move everything around.

    Just be careful not to drop a lifter. If so off goes the head, oil pan, and man just don't drop a lifter.

    the cam is comp cams 277 xtreme hi lift, comp 7.4" rods, comp springs .600 lift, fast 90mm tb, fast 90mm intake, comp hyd roller lifters, stage 2 ported ls6 heads, and to make it sound nice a set of flowmasters. ah forgot to mention the old comp rockers that you can see on the pic there. might as well mention the fast fuel rails, and the 60 lb injectors, slp lid, and slp maf.

    what are the specs on the cam? also are those still 1.7 rockers? and since you are pulling your lifters out as well that should make your cam installation even easy. I know mine slid out no problem just have to keep turning it. Why did you opt to go with 60 lbs injectors, seems a bit much lol

    That is gonna be nice. NO worries with a lifter with all of that coming off. Can't wait to hear some dyno numbers.
