    Torquer 3 install starts!!!

    Ordered my Torquer3 package last night with LS6 ported oil pump, LS2 timing chain. UPS 2nd day air should have it here tomorrow or Wednesday. I'm already starting to break the engine bay down. Any hints or good advice anyone wanna throw in? Everything should go in Wednesday night, button up on Thursday, and then the test start. Hopefully, Friday morning I'll get it tuned!!!!!!

    Not quite sure I understand the pump and chain removal and install. I have to loosen the oil pan bolts?

    The chain is easy, you'll figure it out. The hard part is the oil pump pick up tube which is inside the oil pan. You'll have to loosen the oil pan bolts to give it some more room. Then remove one tiny nut that holds the tube to the oil pump.

    It can be nerve racking.

    Make sure you buy extra keepers (spring locks)

    that oil pump bolt is a pita, take your time with it and make sure you have a new gasket for the oil pump pick up line

    not a bad idea to put a rag in the oil pan in case you drop that nut on the pickup tube. It'll keep it from rolling back in the pan. DON"T FORGET TO TAKE THE RAG BACK OUT if you put one in there.

    cam installed. Hardest part thus far was radiator removal. Now on to the oil pump and chain. Does the bolt in the bellhousing go into the oil pan? Looks like I have to remove it. Looks to be more than 12 bolts to drop it...

    Yes there are a couple bellhousing bolts to remove from the oil pan. Double and triple check the pick up tube O-ring installation (easy to pinch).

    Tip on the pickup tube bolt everyone hates to do: use a piece of thin wire wrapped around the bolt to suspend it and a little ratcheting wrench to get it started, then remove the wire. Makes it MUCH easier and less likely to drop.

    Good luck, and nice choice on that cam

    im questioning myself on the alignment of sprockets. i turned the motor over completely once and they ended up in the same place. they seem to be straight. would it be noticeable if they are off?

    Ya it would be noticeable. Rotate the engine a few times, that's what I did. They'll line up, and then you know you did it right.

    Did you get that o-ring on there right?

    And what was the issue with the radiator? Took me, maybe 2 minutes.

    ok, Im fed up.... I got all new seals with the kit. I keep reading there is black and brown seals. All of mine are the same. Does this matter? I bought the spring tool from Speed, Inc. Part of this tool looks to be for the seals but it didn't come with any notes or instructions. I'm lost and need help.

    The seals are the same, it's not a problem. Take a socket and make sure you get them on there snug but don't ruin them. I'm not sure on the process of installing them so don't quote me. But that's just how I did it.

    This will help.

    Nice! Post up your numbers if you get a dyno run/tune with the cam. Interested to see what it does.
