yea, the springs are pricey to do it right, and I would NOT run an Edelbrock cam. They are not known for cams. Instead I would find someone who is known for cams and go with their recommendation.

I was not aware of this ... just thinking they were made as a complimenting pair so it seemed easiest

any good cam manufactures that you would suggest ... engine internal manufactures for V8's I am out of my relm of knowledge

Thunder racing.

Get the 224/112 cam

Here's there site: http://www.thunderracing.com/

They have a dyno run with this cam in a lightly modded LS1 (basic bolt ons) almost hit 400hp at the wheels.

Fairly mild too.

The engine will stay in the truck, the cooling system will get drained then the radiator and the grill have to go. If you run an AC , the condenser will need to be moved out of the way.

Whether or not to start w/the aftermarket cam is totally up to you. I'm saying what I would do.

I called them up -- they are running some #s and are getting back to me -- he was saying because its a carbed lm7 that it might need to be a custom cam no extra cost to me

I keep forgetting that you can pul parts of the front clip off ... yeah not really thing I am gonna run a/c ... the two front windows down and make the two barn door windows pop outs and that is gonna be plenty of moving air !!

I am thinking I might do a hybrid .. install and get it running then do the cam swap before I put the who;e front clip back together

this is teh way it sits right now

I keep finding differing opinions on this .... Will a 4l60 run correctly with a carbureted lm7 ? --- I am guessing not so well if it were a 4l60e because it would need an ecm to control the trans right ?

I believe its a 4l60 in the truck now ... thats what the PO told me still nee dto ID it though . but it would have to be a 4l60 vs a 60e if it was being run with a 350 , right?

I have a 02 5.3 that I bought the GMPP intake and MSD 6LS ignition for a 51 Chevy project I'm working on.

I talked to Comp Cams about a cam shaft they say you can run the stock cam but for the most performance a custom one is best. By the time you get a cam, springs, timing chain you are looking at about a grand.

I have my engine on a stand and I am having a hard time finding some spects on a alternater. Is there some way to use the stock one or is there a company that makes the brakets to use a older style one wire? Can you swap the pulley between the two.
