Cams

Quick (n00b) question, I'm thinking about getting some new cams and was wondering if it was a big job getting it to look like this:

Is it as easy as just taking the cover off?

Thanks

Re: Cams

time consuming, you got to take off the valve cover,remove the cam gear cover, unbolt the stock cam gears x2, remove timing belt this is the bitch, set the gears to TDC ( Top dead centre)and reset the grooves back on to the teeth of the cam gears, dont put an OEM timing belt on!!

Which if you do that, I will find you and throw gravel at your cam gears while your car is running. lol
