Ok somebody help me out here..
looking at doing a cam swap on my SS when it gets here..
what i need to know is what all do I need?
I am hearing that I need to swap the lifters, cause the stock lifters back on # 7 and 8 wont be able to handle the new cam.
Anybody else heard this?
also I am being told that I need to swap the cam gear to an LS7 gear because the Camaro LS3 will need to be set up for this..
I am looking a a pretty radical idle setup, and have installed cams before..
I just am hearing different things about the cam eating up lifters, and causing major damage if not installed with the correct parts.. on other LS3 because of the offset rockers.
any info on this will be greatly appreciated.
On the LS1 all you needed was dual springs some new retainers, locks, cam, 6-7 quarts of oil, and a little time, and you where good to go...took me a couple of hours, and it was done.
