We are running the stock converter. We have ran the stock converter with the 2C cam many times and have found no issues.

Everything has been stripped down to the heads, unbolted from the transmission, and ready to come out!

Now that the motor is completely out, we will be attaching it to a engine mount to remove the heads and cam. Next stop, Livernois Motorsports Powerstorm Stage 2 heads and Powerstorm 2C-HL camshaft.

Does the motor really need to come out to do this work?
Seems like it would be added labour/expense.

Just curious

Thanks

I'm following along just for the pictures...

I may be speaking out of turn, but an engine is a heck of a lot easier to work with on an engine stand than it is bending over the hood... Plus, what if you didn't plan on bad cam bearings, or other "must remove the engine" problems to fix?

They do this all the time... so they don't take 10 hours like one of us...

Sorry if I'm appearing to be a smart alek... Anyways...... hehe. Just chipping in out of turn...

I'm not arguing here.

But let's just say there wasn't any unforeseen issues. What would the time difference be if working on motor while in car.
There's no doubt that it's easier if the motor was out

For this project we replaced all of the gaskets and seals on the motor so it had to come out. If you are doing just a camshaft or heads, the motor can stay in the car.

Yes it would be quicker if we left the motor in but we needed to get all of the gaskets replaced so it had to come out. If you would be leaving the motor in and replacing the heads and the cam, it would probably only be a few hours less, not that much.

A fresh set of Livernois Motorsports Powerstorm Stage 2 Heads have made it on!

1 Heads on SMALL (1).jpg

Take a closer look to see the Powerstorm Rocker Arm Braces in a beautiful blue powder coating. They are made of premium 6061-T6 billet aluminum to improve the valvetrain and rocker arm control. They are available for both stock and ARP hardware.

We will typically see final numbers come in the range of 420-440whp. Once it is custom dyno tuned we can see how much this specific car will pickup!
