    Talking Cam Swap....FINALLY

    Well after waiting far too long it's finally going down, sending the heads out and converter and ordering the last of the parts to get this thing done. With that said cam swap gurus and hemi whisperer pros here's my list please let me know if I'm missing anything. This is my first swap very excited!!! Truck sits with 156k and uses only amsoil since around 80k when I bought it.
    Felpro 5.7 engine gasket kit
    Felpro head bolts mains and secondary's
    Crank bolt
    Custom push rods for milled heads
    5.7 timing set with 6.1 tensioner
    Waterpump
    Oil pump thinking of upgrading to Meiling
    Break in oil, after break in oil
    Coolant and distilled water
    Set of new plugs
    Tune(have sct may go with hemifever or HPTuners at a local shop with dyno)

    With all this said, pull the motor or leave it in the truck?

    Don't forget the back bolt on the AC compressor. It's hard to see.

    Coley! Wow glad to see you still have your bee. I have not fully decided yet on tuning. I already have a hemifever tune but there are a few shops around me that are using hpt. Problem is it's all chargers and challengers almost no hemi Rams and I know our tranny computer isn't the most friendly. Cost wise I may go hemifever since I already have the sct and he's had succes with the combo I'm doing.

    Yep still got my bee it's been neglected a lil. But the dam thing still runs good. Still got rays old srt max and 6.1 intake/ covers and coils sitting in the closet. I was reading on Moe's you get a free hemi Fever base tune when u buy the Diablo trinity. I haven't been up to date on who tunes these days but I was leaning towards that for tuning. I figured since I've got around 129 k on her I might as well do new lifters. With the 6.1 push rods and springs Just gotta track those down now
