Cam swap DONE!!!

This is a discussion on Cam swap DONE!!! within the Internal Engine forums, part of the LSx Technical Help Section category; I haven't read the write up in a while. I bet you used an air compressor to hold the valves ...

    9 hours doesn't sound too bad at all. Probably just as bad as swapping a stall converter.

    Stock heads I assume?

    What size & type headers are installed?

    Great job on the work done and enjoyed the pics as well.

    Yea, that's what it was. An air compressior to hold the valves up, I knew somebody would know what it is

    Yep, stock heads. They are pacesetter long tubes and I do believe they are 1 3/4" or 1 5/8", can't remember. But I'll find out for sure and let you know

    In your video you showed the oil pressure gauge, which looked up around 70 or 80psi. why was it up that high? cold engine or what? just curious.

    any dyno graph with the cam?

    Its cool, just giving you a hard time, lol. If you are referring to intake as just a lid, then yes. Just pacesetter lt's, ory, slp lm1, a lid, and the Torquer V2 cam

    Nice, i have a 98' M6 and did LT pacesetters. I custom made my stainless 2.5" true duals over the axle. I have been looking at the V2 Cam also. I see you got the 112 lsa, why did you choose that instead of the other lsa's?
    I autocross and roadrace my car, so im not looking for just for peak power but the whole power curve.

    Thanks,

    Well, I wanted something with a mean chop to it. The lowest LSA I could get with is was a 112*. So I just went with that. I'm sure there are better cams out there with a better curve for road racing. But the TV2 made good power across the board, so I'm happy with it.

    It took me around 8 hours from start to finish. I had access to a lift, all the tools that I needed and someone experienced helping. Wasnt too bad

    Any hard to get tools needed for the install? I believe I've seen tools that allow springs to be swapped that still hold the valve up. Just trying to see if I'm brave enough to try this myself. I've ripped apart my lt4 in the vette down to the block but never tried to swap a cam etc. If I was 18 I probably would just dive into it but I'm a tad lazier now.

    Yea, there's a tool that holds the valves up using air. If you have never done it, you should find someone who knows what they are doing. Thats what I did. Its not hard to get the tools needed, you dont need anything special, basic tools will work, but their are special tools that will help make things easier. You dont need a lift either, but it helps. One thing to be sure of, when you put your timing cover back on, tighten the bottom ones first, then the top, or else you will cracking your oil pan

    Its a Lingenfelter Oil pump which is suppose to be the best flowing oil pump on the market. Only $105 shipped to the door against LS6 ported for $140 -$150 to the door. Its at about 75 psi fully warmed idle and maxed when WOT And to OP, good numbers, now I just need to get to a dyno

    Thanks. No, I wish I would have done the oil pump, ran out of money. But I'm happy with the numbers
