    Cam - hard to install

    I am planning on getting a new cam, I currenly have an LS6 Cam/LS6 Heads/SLP LS6 Intake, Ported LS6 Oil Pump, LS2 Timing chain. Is it a lot of work/hours to install another cam? I dont wanna spend all this for labor if i'm only putting a cam in.

    Thanks

    it wasnt as bad as i thought. i cant give a good time as far as how long it took since i worked on it a little at a time and waited on parts for a couple days. just take your time and it isnt bad. i would do it again.

    i followed those instructions for the most part. i recomend the crane valve spring compressor. makes it really easy and only took about 2.5-3 hours to do all the springs.

    what springs do you have? if you have ls6 springs, anything below .570 lift would be a cam swap only, so you could do it all in a day w/ your buddy bud light.
