How to Install a Comp Cam in a 5.3L LM7 Part 2
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.

GM LS1 V8 Engine Swap Part I
Catching up on the times.. I have thrown in the towel on old obsolete
engines and have moved forward into a newer technology. I have given up on
my 455 for the simple fact that it is expensive to drive with high fuel
prices.. and an LS engine will provide me with better all around
performance and economy..
UPDATE: I ended up tossing a Q-jet on the 5.3 and calling it a day with the
LS1 cam this little guy pulls to 6000 no problem and melts the tires
without a problem.. You simply can't beat these little motors.
