I am interested in replacing the camshaft in my 2002 GMC Sierra with a mild performance camshaft. I have done this before myself years ago on different vehicles with the engine in the car. A shop that does work for me said they would have to pull the engine to do this, turn it upside down to dislodge lifters to pull cam. Is this what the shop manual advises on doing this, or would it be not easier and less hours to just remove the front parts ( radiator, grill, hood latch assembly, etc. He had said the removal and reinstall would take a couple of days. I know per info that the lifters can be lifted into the plastic trays by just turning the camshaft a couple times and then just remove/replace the cam. You would not have to take the intake off. Thx
have the same problem?
