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.

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.
