Here's my experience with the cam install. Oil pan is the huge PITA on these cars. Maybe some of my posts or pics will help you out:
I took my oil pump apart , makes putting the pump housing on the pick up tube super easy.

Just put the gears in after and then the front cover...

Was a melling pump

I have some install tools for the ATI damper I could lend you. Damper puller, flywheel locking tool, and threaded rod with bearing for install of new damper. PM me if you're interested.

Take a look at my thread. Got some pics of the whole thing. I thought the oil PUMP was pretty easy. It's the oil PAN bolts that were problematic on the ZL1, specifically a wire tray that bolts to both the block and the pan, preventing the pan from dropping. Getting to those bolts/studs was a little difficult for me.

I agree with disassembly of the oil pump. Technically, you should shim the gears, too. Pics in my thread of that, too.

I went with the Dynatech. Hopefully I won't need to take advantage of the lifetime warranty on them too soon.
The English language makes absolutely no sense. You park on a driveway and drive on a parkway. Hemorrhoids are in your as* and asteroids are in the sky. I fully understand why less and less people speak proper English.

RotoFab CAI, ATI Balancer, 18% OD pulley, Dynatech 1 7/8” LT headers with HF cats, DSX auxiliary pump, DSX flex fuel sensor, ID1050x injectors, 174 Thermostat , catch can , Metco breather, JRE Tune..that’s all (for now).

I am addicted to power, will work for mods.
