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!
Oh man that must have sucked! Stuff happens though and Ted is always good to back up his work! I'll keep this in mind when I decide to cam!
