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.
5.3 Squirter Cam'd Running on Engine Stand with LOPE 7-24-13 - LS1 LSx TFS 30602003 cam
Started today by swapping the cam in the Squirter. I noticed that the old
cam was nasty with rust pits. I was worried that the lifters were probably
pitted as well. I asked everyone if I should just run the new cam and risk
damaging it or just run an inexpensive stock LS2 cam. I was just about to
go with running the LS2 cam when my buddy Brad showed up.
I told him of the decision I was trying to make on the cam and he says lets
check the lifters. I told him that I was not pulling and reinstalling the
heads. He pops back with "I will". So after that we rode on his motivation.
He pulled the heads, lifters had pits and we through in a good used set.
We reused the MLS head gasket. On the "eBay" heads, we noticed about four
of the nuts didnt want to come off of the stud. So I recommend that ya'll
might not want to torque them to the ARP recommended 80ft lb. Or it could
have been my poor choice of thread sealer/lube. So when we torqued them
back down we only went to 70ft lb.
I spilled oil everywhere lubing the studs and etc. We were curious to see
if the reused head gaskets were ok and the head studs, so we put the intake
and all back on so that we could start it up. Also, of course we wanted to
hear that cam lope. ;)

Well it's finally over, I'm able to walk away from this truck for a while
and hopefully do some easier stuff for the next few weeks. Taking off the
intake manifold was a big help as you can see so if your thinking about
doing this job I would highly recommend removing the intake before removal.
