    Will LS7 Cam Fit in LS1

    I am putting a L33 into a Miata for track days and possible NASA racing. The L33 came out of a 2005 Silverado extend cab so the cam, although good, is a truck profile cam. So I wanted to upgrade to a Z06 cam profile.

    It basically an LS1 style with the reluctor ring at the rear of the cam and the cam sensor at the rear of the block.

    I have an opportunity to pick up an stock C6 LS7 cam and with a 1x timing gear and LS2 timing cover.

    I need to know if it will fit and then it will function in my engine. I have read much confilicting information on this and the other LS1 forums.

    If anyone knows, I would apprecaite it. If you can point me to a third party site with more infor all the better.

    Thanks!

    as long as you got the ls2 cover with cam sensor on it and get timing gear with half moon on front of it , that how the sensor reads it , and change the top wire withe bottom wire on the plug it got three wire on the plug

    'cause I can get the whole kit for $175. If you know where I can get a custom grind with the timing kit for less let me know.
