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.

DIRTY, BUT SHE'S ON THE ROAD!! Been driving her around for about a month now making sure to work out any issues. So far there havent really been any. Im just focused on building a rear end for it now. I got to get that open diff 2.41 gear out of there!
This build so far has been under $2,000 bucks! I need to recalculate with some precision, but that's what I honestly believe I have in this build including purchasing the truck, engine, trans and drop kit BUT of course not counting my labor :) All I can say is patience, it took me probably a year gathering deals to build this.
