Sorry for the delay Mike, I just saw this. I had Ted do the cam, TWICE!

My timing chain snapped one month and 500 miles after. Not really sure why it happened but there were some issues with 2010 chains (my car was build Oct 2010). I also put on an SLP under pulley and read that it may cause an harmonic imbalance and snap the chain. On the rebuild I used a Katech C5R race chain and an LS2 Dampener.

Congrats on your COTW!

I love the CAM! Well worth doing it twice. It really enhances the cool factor and driving experience. At the local weekly car show people will walk up look at like, wow nice stock Camaro, and walk away. But when I start a crowd quickly gathers! I'm like a proud dad standing there!
