How to Install a Comp Cam in a 5.3L LM7 Part 1
I show you the basics of installing a cam in a 5.3L (LS1 type engine). The
cam I install is a new Comp Cam part #54-455-11 with 215/223 Duration and
.604/.610 Lift on a 112 LSA.
To go along with the install I put in new 7.4" Hardened Chomoley Pushrods
and Comp 918 Valve Spring good for .625 lift.

My Sons First Project Car - 1987 Pontiac Trans Am
Be sure to check us out on Facebook at:
My son has been looking for a car for a while now. He wanted something
that he could fix up and keep for years. His dream car was a third
generation trans am and that's exactly what we found. It's going to be a
bit of a project, but that's what we wanted anyway. We plan to restore and
modify the car and film videos of the progress along the way. The car is a
1987 Pontiac Trans Am with the LG9 5.0 TPI V8. The previous owner already
added headers, a cold air induction setup, aftermarket distributor and
coil, 2500 stall converter, TCI servos in the tranny, drag shocks, subframe
connectors, boxed control arms, and more. Overall, we think it's a great
base to start with. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for watching!
