Aside from the guy tuning the car, the techs were a bunch of $10/hour uninspired guys. No way was I going to let my baby with them for a few days. No one on this planet can do a cam swap better than anyone else, sure they may be able to do it quicker, but not better. These guys swap tons of cams a year, your swap is just another job to them, attention to detail is not as great as it is when I or you do it.

A lift is of little value during a cam swap, I've done 4 with a lift and about 15 without. It was no quicker or better, for me at least.

The job is certaintly easier with all of the correct tools but people have been swapping LS cams for a long time with makeshift tools. Just check out ls1tech.com, those guys can swap a cam with pliers and duct tape

Anyway, I agree it is not for everyone, I just think if you take your time it's not a big deal. I was afraid to do my own, now I've done all my friends and some of thier friends. The worst part about the swap is knowing your working on a $50,000 car, once you get by that, it's not a big deal...

Don't be afraid..If you get stuck give me a call, I'll be tech support

Dave I am planning to do my own cam swap within a couple months I'm 17 and have allot of faith I can do it. But if I run into any problems you mind if I call you also? Thanks chris

Chris you can do it, if I could do it anyone can. I've now performed multiple cam swaps among other modifications. Take your time and use zip lock bags to keep your hardware organized.

Yeah hahaha that's what I did to change the manifolds and full exhaust to z06 those bags help a ton and you mind if I ask you for help when I'm stuck. And since I'm here typing already I'm thinking about the stage 4 btr cam I'm not looking into boosting or adding nitrous to my car. You think this is a good cam for hp and just a overall bad *** cam.

Hahha thanks for the motivation brother!!

Chris BTR stage 4 cam is a badass cam. If your looking a max power set up then that's the cam for you.

I'm wondering why one of you that has received the cam swap instructions doesn't just add a post here with them as an attachment so that everyone doesn't have to keep asking for them via email? Does the site not allow that type of attachment (IE: pdf for Word DOC)? I'm new to the site, so maybe I missed something somewhere...
