I think there is only 2 other members who could compete for most LED battle with him.. And they only got the advantage being quad cabs.

I really get on my LED game.. Been slacking hard on mods recently.

Well, the weekend started with me loving my truck more than my girlfriend thought was healthy and then Saturday night ended with me turning the key and making her fall in love with it that much as well, she loves the sound of the rumble of the new cam and kept telling me not to turn it off because it sounded so good

First i would like to preface this by apologizing for the shotty camera phone pictures i dont own a actually camera so it is the best i could do, also thanks to Gecko and Cheffred for answering some of my dumb questions for this process i appreciate the help and also this whole forum for the knowledge allowing me to do this myself

Here is a quick before video, again i apologize for the quality and also that it is in the garage but we had 40mph winds friday night so that was the only option.



Started in about 8 oclock friday on the tear down



Drained and pulled the radiator, trans cooler and powersteering cooler and set them out of the way.



As well as all the ignition components and a single spark plug from each cylinder.



Next I removed the valve covers, which wasnt all that bad besides all of the wire loom clips that slip over the cover bolts that i swear somee of them had welded themselves on there



Once i got to that point it was almost midnight so i figured with the next task being the springs it would be better to have a fresh start to avoid dropping any keepers.

When i was ordering parts i ended up going ahead and buying the valve spring compressor from jegs for the hemi it was only 125 and i would recommend anyone doing the swap to get one because it made it a breeze.

Here is a comparison between the 6.1 and 5.7 springs there is definitely a difference is size and strength



With the aforementioned tool and a compression tester hooked up to an airline to keep the valves seated, you remove the rocker shafts and the pushrods you just bolt it to the rocker shaft over each spring and tighten the folt down to compress and remove the keepers





You just loosen the bolt remove the spring and put the new spring and keepers back on and move to the next one.



Here is the head with all new 6.1 springs put on.



After all the springs are in i started to remove the water pump housing, ac compressor, and alternator to gain access to the timing cover.



After i got to that point, i removed the dampener pulley with the tool i purchased for the job of amazon for like 50 just in case il need it again for future mods and then removed the timing cover.



After removing the chain tension-er i spun the cam a few times and carefully pulled the cam, here is a shaky picture down the cam and lifter galley, it was hard to get a steady picture because of lack of light.



After re installing the cam, timing cover, water pump and balancer and torquing everything down I had easy access to the EGR so i went ahead and installed the block off that i had purchased from Billet technologies.



Every thing else from there was just a straight reverse order installation including the forged pushrods and retorquing the rocker shafts.

I finished at about 8 oclock on saturday day night, all and all it wasnt a bad job everything went very smooth and went together perfectly

For the swap being i used assembly lube on the cam and also when pulling the water pump and timing cover i knew i would get antifreeze in the pan i just filled up with regular penziol 5-20 to just get things kinda flushed out and cleaned up, after driving it 30 miles and probably 1-2 of run time i went ahead and changed the oil again with Amsoil signature 5-20 and a wix filter



Finally for the good part, he is the video of it just after i finished on saturday night, im currently working on getting a decent camera to get a better video but this is all i have right now.

Its a crazy jay plus cam from inertia motorsports, with uncoated stainless long tubes back into a 18 inch maggie dumped after the axle




After driving putting about 120 miles on it i will say these guys know what they are doing, this truck is just a flat animal off the line now. it pulls incredibly hard from 1500 rpm to 5500 rpm like it is its job. It made the truck quite a bit lounder and changed the tone significantly giving it a much deeper and "raceyer" tone for lack of a better word.

Thank you all for reading and cheers
