This video I actually remove the old cam and install the LS1 cam in my 5.3. The swap was very easy.. So easy in fact a brain dead monkey could do it. Just make sure all you spin the cam over several times so the lifter trays catch all the lifters and hold them in place.. Worse comes to worse you can stick some wooden dowels on either side of the lifter tunnel to prevent a rogue lifter from falling into the oil pan aka the dark abyss.

Best Tips for Breaking in a New Camshaft
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- The
first few minutes of operation will determine the long-term survival of
your flat-tappet camshaft. More agressive lobe designs, stronger
valvesprings and changes to the additives in modern motor oils makes a
"wiped" cam lobe much more likely than in the days of classic muscle cars.
These are a few very important tips for properly breaking in your high
performance flat tappet camshaft.

Super Sleeper 1972 Nova - /BIG MUSCLE
Wanna race? If so you may want to reconsider. You see this is Dru Diesner's
1972 Chevrolet Nova and it's anything but stock. From a looks perspective
it's nothing special, in fact most people wouldn't put up $500 for this
thing. Look a little deeper though and OH MOMMA! You see under its faded
green paint lurks a twin supercharged LS2 that makes 1,160 hp... at the
rear wheels. It epitomizes the term "sleeper", and is lethal to just about
every other road going vehicle it comes in contact with. Big Muscle
recently visited Northern Chicago to get a sample of this beast, and holy
crap was it one of the best automotive experiences we've ever had.
